Kidney Transplant

There are two main types of kidney transplants: Living Donor Transplants and Deceased Donor Transplants.

Kidney Transplant

Kidney transplant operations are guided by the and Human Organ Transplantation (Amndment ) Act 2011 of the Parliament of India. There are certains provisions which have to be fulfilled before a patient is considered for Renal Transplantation. These are the links on these provisions and the necessary affidavits for renal transplantation which are needed in each case.

This operation is provided by team of Urology and Kidney Transplant, in conjunction with the Dept of Nephrology and kidney Transplant.

Other Services provided by the Nephrology Dept include

  1. Blood Pressure Clinic
  2. Diabetic Nephropathy Clinic
  3. Management of obstructive kidney diseases, preventing stone disease recurrence
  4. Creation of AV fistula, Central line and perma cath for long term hemodialysis
  5. Care of Vascular access
  6. Individualizing dialysis dose as per patient needs and Special emphasis on nutrition and physiotherapy

What are the benefits of Kidney Transplant?

There are many advantages of having a Kidney Transplant as compared to maintenance on Haemodialysis:

  • Eliminates the need for Dialysis and help patients enjoy a life filled with less restrictions (for instance greater freedom to travel), more energy and productivity
  • Increased life expectancy and better quality of life
  • More effective and less costly than Dialysis

How will the hospital help to manage the cost associated with Kidney Transplant?

Before moving forward with patient evaluation and surgery, the financial counsellors and coordinators review the patient’s insurance policy carefully and advise them in case of any concerns. Many insurance companies now include transplant benefits. The finance team at the hospital help patients to understand the rules in detail. Medicare and private insurance plans cover much of the cost of Kidney Transplant.

What are the selection criteria for Kidney Transplant patients?

Not all patients are suitable to have a transplant. The team at BLK Super Speciality Hospital discuss the transplant procedure in detail with the patient during hospital visits. One needs to go through several screening levels to help ascertain the suitability criteria for a transplant. The selection criteria for Kidney Transplant recipients include the following:

  • Existing or impending end-stage renal disease
  • Free of malignancies
  • Free of active infection
  • Intact or correctable urological abnormalities
  • No active abuse of alcohol, drugs or smoking
  • Heart and Lung status consistent with being able to tolerate the surgery and consistent with a predicted good, long-term outcome
  • Ability to follow transplant protocols and medication regimens
  • An acceptable body weight

Every potential candidate is considered on an individual basis. A number of radiological, blood and urine tests are done and evaluated by the Urologist and Nephrologist.
