The Perks of Kidney Transplant & Post Surgery


One of the biggest aspects of taking care of patients with advanced chronic kidney disease is planning for future renal replacement needs. The benefits of transplantation over dialysis are widely accepted and if someone is medically cleared, they should be encouraged to pursue transplantation. For those patients that have potential live donors, discussions about home dialysis training and permanent dialysis access are curtailed.

With a successful kidney transplant, many of our patients can live more normally than with dialysis. This is because living on dialysis makes you dependent on the process, which serves as your body's artificial kidney. The quality of life changes drastically after a kidney transplant with Advanced Kidney Treatment Hospital in Hyderabad, Hayathnagar. In my experience, it can help people get their lives back, and that’s truly a gift.

Perks of Kidney Transplant

A kidney transplant is a treatment where your damaged kidney is replaced with one or the other form of a kidney donor. A transplant surgeon connects your new kidney to an artery and vein in your lower abdomen and the ureter, allowing urine to transfer from your new kidney to the bladder carrying excess fluid and waste to the ureter. Transplantation is the best option because it lasts for about 10-20 years and the transplant operates 24/7 to filter the wastes and toxins from your body when compared to dialysis it only filters less than half of the body’s waste and only through a dialysis machine.


It is a treatment of choice that is opted for if feasible. It is used to treat chronic kidney diseases like End Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) or as a go-to option in the case of kidney failure. Which if not treated could lead to coma and eventually death.

Types of Kidney Transplant:

As the field of nephrology keeps on advancing over the past 50 years, at sunrise hospitals the Advanced Kidney Treatment Hospital in Hyderabad, Hayathnagar kidney transplantation can be done through:

  • A deceased donor: a person who decides to donate his/her kidney/s to people in dire need of a transplant.
  • A living donor: this could be a family member or a friend, or some stranger who has decided to donate a kidney of their own.

It is accurate and safe when considering these two abovementioned methods 95%-98% of the success rates are estimated.

Are You Eligible For Kidney Transplant?

The sooner the transplant the better the results, and eligibility will be discussed as per your diagnosis. If:

  • Active body intoxication
  • Uncontrolled heart disease
  • Uncontrolled mental illnesses
  • Constantly missing dialysis appointments
  • Strictly limit sweets and desserts
  • Any cancer patient (except skin)
  • A person’s life expectancy is lowered
What Happens After Surgery?

Immunosuppressants are prescribed for the rest of their lives so that the body could sustain the transplanted organ in your body, along with antibiotics and painkillers. The hospital discharge will be after a few days if the team observes a quick response of organ acceptance in your body. Regular check-ups and blood tests are asked to be attended after a few months of the treatment to ensure proper functionality.

Even after the kidney transplant procedure is done successfully it may fail due to two common reasons:

  • If your body’s immune system rejects the transplanted organ.
  • Or if the blood clot formations occur in and around the kidney.

But this is not at all a topic of concern or worry. Because a patient can undergo kidney transplantation for the second time. As the success rates for the first and second time probably be the same, the Advanced Kidney Treatment Hospital in Hyderabad, Hayathnagar will make sure to eradicate the factor/s that led to the transplantation failure. A patient can undergo up to 5 kidney transplantations, whereas the success rates will keep on decreasing after the second transplantation failure.

A kidney transplant is cost-effective, improves the quality of life, and improves the chances of survival. Kidney transplantation is a complex process to perform on the patients like any risk of infection or the caution of not letting the patient back to his/her’s permanent dialysis lifestyle. Even more complex to collect the recipient’s matching donor as it requires a lot of waiting to receive the organ from them. The maintenance of transplanted organs post-surgery is equally complex.

While there is an eagerness to proceed with transplantation, it must be done in a way that ensures the safety of both donors and recipients. The transplantation process has a specific nature, which nephrologists need to understand to assist their patients.
