Department of Kidney Transplant

Parul Sevashram - Leading Kidney Transplant Hospital in India

Our Pioneering Kidney Transplant Department
The kidneys are vital organs located in the back of the abdomen, responsible for maintaining fluid balance, filtering waste products from the blood, and regulating electrolyte levels. These bean-shaped powerhouses perform essential functions that contribute to overall health and well-being. However, when kidney function declines significantly due to disease or injury, kidney transplantation becomes a life-saving option. Kidney transplantation offers the possibility of restoring normal kidney function and improving the quality of life for individuals with end-stage renal disease, providing hope for a healthier future.

Parul Sevashram Hospital has emerged as one of the best kidney transplant hospitals in India. Led by highly skilled nephrologists, the kidney transplant & nephrology department is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals affected by renal conditions. With their extensive knowledge and expertise, the team focuses on accurate diagnosis, advanced treatment options, and compassionate patient care.

Your Options for a Kidney Transplant

When considering a kidney transplant, you have two options for donors: living donors and deceased donors.

Living Donors

Living donors are healthy individuals who willingly donate one of their kidneys. They can be family members, friends, or even unrelated individuals. Living donor transplants offer advantages such as shorter wait times and better outcomes due to the immediate availability of a healthy kidney.

Deceased Donors

Deceased donors are individuals who have chosen to donate their organs, including their kidneys, post their demise. These organs undergo careful evaluation for transplantation. Deceased donor kidneys provide hope and a new lease on life for those in need.

Both living and deceased donor kidneys can greatly improve the quality of life for the transplant recipient. The choice depends on factors like medical condition, compatibility, and availability. Our team at Parul Sevashram Hospital will guide you through the process, ensuring the best possible outcomes for your kidney transplant.

Our Meticulous Approach to Donor Evaluation and Selection

Timeline of Donor Evaluation and Selection

Finding a suitable kidney match varies in time due to blood type, tissue compatibility, and donor availability. These take thorough evaluations that involve tests, assessments, and consultations. The timeframe for evaluation depends on individual circumstances and test results. Our team ensures that this process is done efficiently and quickly with thoroughness to find the best match for you.

Frequently Asked Questions about Kidney Transplant Treatment

The potential risks and complications of a kidney transplant include infection, organ rejection, side effects of immunosuppressant medications, surgical complications, and the development of other health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Regular follow-up care and adherence to medication regimens can help minimise these risks.
The typical hospital stay after a kidney transplant ranges from 5 to 10 days, depending on the individual’s condition and recovery progress. During this period, medical professionals closely monitor the patient for any signs of complications, ensure proper healing, and provide education on post-transplant care.

The success rate of kidney transplant procedures has significantly improved over the years. Generally, the success rate for kidney transplants is high, with a one-year survival rate of around 95% and a five-year survival rate of approximately 85-90%. However, it is important to note that individual outcomes may vary based on various factors such as age, overall health, and adherence to post-transplant care guidelines.
Following a kidney transplant, dietary restrictions are typically put in place initially to support the healing process and manage medication side effects. These restrictions may include limiting salt intake, monitoring fluid intake, avoiding certain medications or supplements, and following a balanced and healthy diet. Over time, dietary recommendations may evolve based on the individual’s progress and specific needs, so it’s crucial to consult with the healthcare team for personalised guidance.  
Signs of organ rejection after a kidney transplant can include flu-like symptoms, fever, tenderness or pain around the transplant area, decreased urine output, weight gain, and high blood pressure. If any signs of rejection are suspected, immediate medical attention is crucial. Rejection is typically managed by adjusting immunosuppressant medications to prevent the immune system from attacking the transplanted kidney. Regular monitoring and close collaboration with the transplant team are vital to detect and manage rejection episodes effectively.
