FAQ

Kidney Transplant Surgeons in India

Chronic kidney disorders are a major health concern for patients across the world. When kidney function declines to a certain level, patients have the end-stage renal disease and require either dialysis or transplantation to lead a stable life.

A person getting a transplant most often gets just one kidney. In some situations, the patient may get two kidneys from a deceased donor. The diseased organs are usually left in place. The transplanted kidney is placed in the lower abdomen on the front side of the body.

A kidney transplant is the best way to treat kidney failure or end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Most people who undergo kidney transplant find that they have increased stamina and energy.

The patients can return to a more normal lifestyle, and those who were dependent upon dialysis can enjoy newfound freedom.

Patients who cannot undergo kidney transplant include-

1. A person who is having a history of cancer. Such a patient will have weak organs rendering him/her unfit for a kidney transplant.

2. Active lung infection, including tuberculosis- A person having any life-threatening disease is not deemed fit for a Kidney transplant.

3. Any disease related to the heart, liver, or lungs- A person with a heart, lung or liver ailment is considered too weak to undergo an organ transplant.

4. Risky lifestyle habits such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and drug addiction.

5. Any other life-threatening disease- Any person who himself has the fatal disease cannot be deemed fit to any organ transplant procedure.

Patients deemed fit for a kidney transplant surgery in India can safely undergo the replacement surgery in any established hospital across the country. Furthermore, to check whether patients can undergo a kidney transplant in India, they can have an online consultation with a doctor through Medmonks complimentary service before they arrive in the country.

What are some of the kidney diseases?

a) Chronic Kidney Disease- The most common form of kidney disease is chronic kidney disease caused by high blood pressure and diabetes. Kidney failure is the last (most severe) stage of chronic kidney disease. This is called end-stage renal disease or ESRD for short. Other causes of chronic kidney disease include Autoimmune diseases, such as lupus/SLE and IgA nephropathy, Genetic disorders, polycystic kidney disease, Nephrotic syndrome and Urinary tract problems

b) Acute Renal Failure- This type of kidney failure is called acute kidney injury or acute renal failure and is of sudden onset.

The causes of kidney failure include heart attack, illegal drug use and drug overdose and urinary tract problems. However, this type of kidney failure is not always permanent.

When both the kidneys stop working, renal failure occurs. If this renal failure continues (chronically), the end-stage renal disease occurs, with an accumulation of toxic waste products in the body. In this case, either dialysis or kidney transplant is required.

Common Causes of End-Stage Renal Disease:

1. Diabetes mellitus

2. High blood pressure

3. Glomerulonephritis

4. Polycystic Kidney Disease

5. Severe anatomical problems of the urinary tract
