Kidney Transplantation

In a kidney transplant, a patient with an advanced renal (kidney) disease or kidney failure receives a healthy kidney from a living donor or from a recently deceased donor, provided they have a compatible Blood Group.

Symptoms of renal disease may include:

  • Fluid retention
  • Shortness of breath,
  • Changes in mental status,
  • Abnormal urine or blood test results
  • High blood pressure
  • Fatigue and headaches

For select patients, a kidney transplant can provide a very effective treatment of their renal disease - allowing them to function normally with few dietary restrictions, minor physical limitations, and continued maintenance on medications.
