Renal Transplant

The Nephrology-Urology department takes pride in its teamwork and the Hospital is well equipped with latest diagnostic and therapeutic facilities. Kauvery offers living as well as deceased donor transplants not only for adults but for also children.

When the kidneys lose their function, that is filtering wastes from the body, toxic wastes start accumulating in the body. This is called Renal failure. This situation occurs when a patient suffers from certain diseases such as Malignant Hypertension, Chronic Infections, Diabetes, Glomeruli which is inflammation and scarring of the filters in the kidney, Polycystic Kidney Disease and also due to Autoimmune disorders like Lupus. Most of the patients who need a renal transplant will be mostly on dialysis.

A renal transplant may not be considered if the patient has Tuberculosis or a recent history of cancer, advanced heart, lung or liver disease and if the patient is a chronic smoker, alcohol or drug dependant.

The surgery takes approximately three hours. The donor kidney will be placed in the lower abdomen, the blood vessels from the donor kidney will be connected to the patient’s body and the ureter from the donor kidney will be connected to the patient’s bladder. Blood will start flowing through the new kidney and it begins its function of filtering.
