Kidney Transplant: The best option for end-stage

Most often, kidney transplantation is the best treatment option for patients with chronic and end-stage renal disease. A kidney transplant is an operation that places a healthy kidney in the body. The transplanted kidney takes over the work of the two kidneys that failed and dialysis is no longer needed. Often,the new kidney will start making urine as soon as blood starts flowing through it. A successful kidney transplant affords a new beginning for ESRD patients because it offers enhanced quality and duration of life.

A recipient receives a healthy kidney from a donor. Kidneys for transplantation come from either a deceased or a living donor.
