Renal transplant

Renal transplant, or kidney transplant, is a major surgery where a healthy donor kidney is transplanted into a person with end-stage renal disease, when the kidneys have lost about 90% of their normal function.

Only one donor kidney is needed to replace two failed kidneys. In the majority of patients, a renal transplant is a preferred treatment over a lifetime on dialysis.

The kidneys play an important role in filtering and removing waste products from the blood. As kidney function fails, these toxins and excess fluid cannot be removed from the body effectively. The build up of waste products in the blood can cause permanent damage to the other organs.

Common causes of kidney failure include:

  • diabetes
  • uncontrolled hypertension
  • hereditary conditions like polycystic kidney disease.

At URODOC, our team understands the importance of holistic and patient-centred care when undergoing a significant surgery. We work closely with a multi-disciplinary team of specialists as we guide patients through their renal transplant journey — before, in and after the operating theatre.
