Kidney Transplant is a process of replacing diseased or non-working kidneys with a healthy one kidney which is removed from the body of a living or brain dead donor. If one kidney is functioning properly one can live long with this easily.
There are two types of Kidney transplant surgeries
Cadaveric or Deceased Donor Kidney Transplant Surgery In this type of Kidney Transplant Surgery, a donor is a brain-dead person and the family members have consented to donate their organs. There are a number of tests performed on both donor and recipient.
Living Donor Kidney Transplant Surgery In this type of kidney transplant surgery the donor is family member or spouse. The donor who is compatible and willing to donate is thoroughly examined before taking the kidney.
