Ojas Hospital – Center of Excellence for Kidney Transplant
A kidney transplant is a process to place a disease-free kidney from a living or dead donor into a person whose kidneys are no longer working properly.
The kidneys are two bean-shaped parts located on each side of the spine just below the rib cage. Each has the size same as that of a fist. Their main function is to filter and remove garbage, waste minerals and fluid from the blood by producing urine.
When your kidneys do not work properly or lose their filtering ability, dangerous levels of fluid and waste accumulate in your body, which can make your blood pressure high and result in kidney failure.
Kidney failure or end-stage renal disease happens when the kidneys have lost about 90% of their ability to function normally.
There are some common causes of end-stage kidney disease which include:
- Chronic, uncontrolled high blood pressure
- Chronic glomerulonephritis
- Polycystic kidney disease
Patients with this disease need to have garbage minerals removed from their bloodstream via a dialysis machine or a kidney transplant to stay alive.
At Ojas Hospital, health care professionals in many medical specialities work together as a team to ensure favourable results from your kidney transplant.
