Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplantation is the organ transplantation of kidneys to patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), which can result in a permanent state of kidney disease requiring dialysis. Donors can be alive or dead, and even living donors can live a healthy life with healthy kidneys. A new kidney is placed in the lower abdomen. Immunosuppressive drugs are given to kidney transplant recipients to prevent the body from rejecting the new kidney. Long-term use of immunosuppressants puts kidney transplant recipients at increased risk of infections and cancer.
