What is Kidney Transplant?

A kidney transplant is a procedure of taking out a healthy kidney from a donor and placing it in the body of a patient whose kidneys have failed. It is a more suitable option than dialysis as it has better outcomes.

How is the Procedure Performed?

In Kidney Transplant Surgery donor's kidney is placed in the lower part of the abdomen and then its blood vessels and urine tube is attached to the bladder.

Usually, the procedure takes 2-3 hours to finish and is done under general anesthesia.

The surgeon makes a diagonal incision on either side of the body depending on the case. In general, the recipient's own kidney is left untouched in the body unless it is infected. 

Who is the Right Doctor for Kidney Transplant?

For Kidney Transplant surgery, a team of experienced Nephrologists, urologists, and general anesthesiologists is required.

What tests are required?

Tests required before performing a kidney transplant are blood typing, tissue typing, and cross-matching other than regular physical examination and medical history check.

What is the Usual Success Rate for this Procedure?

Many factors play an essential role in the success of a kidney transplant, such as age and the co-existence of other diseases like diabetes, hypertension, etc.

Robotic kidney transplant or RAKT (Robot-Assisted Kidney Transplant ) is a minimally invasive and the most advanced form of surgery.

What is included in the cost of Kidney Transplant?

The cost of Kidney Transplant includes:

  • Preoperative diagnostic tests cost [some tests that may be required, including blood typing, tissue typing, and cross-matching]

  • The surgery cost package includes donor kidney resection and kidney transplant to the patient.

  • Post-Operative cost (depends on the number of follow-up sessions)

  • Medicine cost (Immunosuppressants, Pain Killers, Antibiotics, etc.)

  • Cost of immunosuppressant injections (if required)

  • Patient's hospital stay 

  • Donor's hospital stay

Note: Extra care is needed after a kidney Transplant since there is a risk of infection, so the patient may need to stay in a sterile environment during recovery.

What are the factors affecting cost of Kidney Transplant?

The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:

  • Type of hospital and room opted (General, Twin sharing, or single room)

  • The severity of the disease

  • Additional tests may be needed, like Tissue Biopsy 

  • Post-surgical complication, if it happens (such as bleeding, rejection of the donated kidney, etc.) 

  • Cost of Blood products (if required)

  • An extended stay at the Hospital due to any health reason apart from the package stay period

  • Cost of Accommodation during follow-ups, in case the patient is not a local resident
