For some patients with advanced stages of kidney disease a kidney transplant is required. This is an operation that involves the surgical placement of a healthy kidney into a person with kidney failure. We can help you make the decision on whether a kidney transplant is the best treatment for you and to help you through the process.
There are two types of kidney transplants:
- Transplant using a of kidney from a living donor, such as a relative
- Transplant using a kidney from an unrelated donor who has died
After a kidney transplant, we will assess your kidney function, adjust the antirejection medications, and monitor your health and the health of your transplanted kidney.
