Donor Nephrectomy and Kidney/Renal Transplant

Dr. Rahul Yadav is one of the best Transplant Surgeon and is an expert in the field of kidney/Renal transplant.

A donor nephrectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a healthy kidney from a live donor for transplant into a person whose kidneys no longer function properly.In this procedure, the kidney is freed using four ports and removed through an incision in the lower abdomen.The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs located on each side of the spine just below the rib cage. Each one is concerned about the size of a fist. Their main function is to filter and remove excess waste, minerals and fluid from the blood by producing urine.

A kidney transplant is usually the treatment of choice for kidney failure compared with a lifetime of dialysis. The use of donor nephrectomy for live kidney donation has increased in recent years as the number of people waiting for a kidney transplant has increased dramatically. The demand for donor kidneys far outweighs the supply of deceased-donor kidneys, which makes living-donor kidney transplant an attractive option for people waiting for a deceased-donor kidney to become available.

Nowadays, most of the donor nephrectomies are done Laparoscopically (keyhole surgery) with obvious advantages like fast recovery, less morbidity, less hospital stay, early return to work and with better cosmetic results.

Before donating a kidney, the donor will already have undergone a series of consultations with the Transplant Surgeon (Urologist/Genitourinary Surgeon), Nephrologists, transplant coordinators, and a counselor.

The donor undergoes a battery of investigations to ensure whether he is suitable to donate the kidney with the best possible outcome of a transplant.

Kidney/Renal Transplant meaning Implantation of a donated kidney into the lower abdomen to restore kidney function. The transplant surgeon is

waiting and instantly prepares the kidney and places it in the recipient. This operation has been recommended because their own kidneys have failed. Alternatives to this procedure include observation, haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis with poor Outcomes and prognosis compared to transplant.
