  • What is a kidney transplant?
    A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure in which a healthy kidney from a donor is transplanted into a person with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) whose kidneys can no longer function properly.
  • Who is eligible for a kidney transplant?
    Eligibility for a kidney transplant is determined by several factors, including the severity of kidney disease, overall health, and the absence of medical conditions that could affect the success of the transplant. Each case is evaluated individually by a transplant team.
  • Where do the donor kidneys come from?
    Donor kidneys can come from deceased donors or living donors. Deceased donor kidneys are obtained from individuals who have chosen to donate their organs after death. Living donor kidneys come from healthy individuals who willingly donate one of their kidneys.
  • How long is the waiting time for a kidney transplant?
    The waiting time for a kidney transplant varies depending on factors such as blood type, medical urgency, and availability of suitable donors. It is important to note that the waiting time can be unpredictable, and patients may need to wait for a suitable match.
  • What is the success rate of kidney transplants?
    Kidney transplants have a high success rate, with the transplanted kidney usually functioning well in the recipient's body. The success of the transplant depends on various factors, including the overall health of the recipient, compatibility of the donor kidney, and adherence to post-transplant care.
  • What is the recovery process after a kidney transplant?
    The recovery process after a kidney transplant involves close monitoring, medication management, and follow-up appointments. Patients need to take immunosuppressant medications to prevent rejection of the transplanted kidney. With proper care and follow-up, patients can resume their daily activities and enjoy an improved quality of life.
  • What are the potential risks and complications of a kidney transplant?
    While kidney transplants are generally safe and successful, there are potential risks and complications associated with the procedure. These can include rejection of the transplanted kidney, infection, side effects of immunosuppressant medications, and surgical complications. The transplant team closely monitors patients to minimize these risks and provide appropriate care.
