There are many options when it comes to the treatment of a kidney that fails to maintain normal function in the body. Kidney transplant surgery is one of the most successful ways to restore normal functioning of the affected kidneys as it allows for an access to greater freedom and a better quality of life.
A kidney transplant patient is more likely to enjoy bouts of energy and follow the less strict diet as compared to patients who choose an alternative treatment.
The kidney performs several important functions in the human body. Even slight damage to the kidneys can, therefore, cause a lot of problems. When the kidney is rendered incapable of its main function, that is, removal of waste products from the blood, a condition called uremia develops.
Unfortunately, the symptoms of this condition do not develop unless 90 percent of the kidney is damaged. This is the time when an individual would require a kidney transplantation surgery or dialysis to restore the normal functioning.

Transplantation is when you put in an organ from a healthy person into someone whose organ is diseased or missing. And a Kidney Transplant Surgeon places a healthy kidney in place of diseased kidney/kidneys. The surgeon not just performs the procedure but handholds you through the preoperative and post operative rehabilitation as well. Recommending the right tests and prescribing medicines is also done by them. Technicians, surgeon and nephrologist are all part of the team who perform this surgery.
We have outlined below the tests that give a good picture of whether you need a kidney transplant.:
Here is a comprehensive list of additional tests needed before and during the kidney transplant procedure.:
The transplant should happen efficiently and kidneys should work well post acceptance by the body, therefore it is important for the tests to be accomplished at the right time and frequency. The heart tests such as the Echocardiogram, Electrocardiogram and the cardiac stress test are immensely important to know the heart strength.
You must visit a Kidney Transplant Surgeon if you have any of the commonly seen symptoms associated with a kidney failure. You can avoid the condition of going on the dialysis at all by getting a kidney transplant to preempt this situation. You need to stay in touch with your surgeon during the post transplant recovery period. The decision to get a transplant or not is also done in consultation with the surgeon.
