Kidney Transplantation & Robotic Surgery
Kidney transplantation is one of the most common organ transplant procedures performed today.
Kidney transplantation is a surgical procedure used to treat kidney failure. For thousands of patients with End Stage Renal Disease, this operation is a life-saving option. The kidneys filter waste from the blood and excrete it through the urine. They also aid in the maintenance of your body's fluid and electrolyte balance. When your kidneys stop working, waste accumulates in your body and can make you very unwell.
A kidney transplant is a therapy for renal failure; it is not a cure; thus, you must take medications on a daily basis to ensure that your immune system does not reject the new kidney. A functioning donated kidney filters toxins and keeps you healthy better than dialysis. A kidney transplant, however, is not for everyone.
