Surgical procedures for kidney transplants
Given our vast experience with kidney dialysis and transplants, we ensure that our kidney transplant procedures are smooth and seamless. Kidney transplants are performed by open surgeries, minimally invasive procedures such as:
Conventional open kidney transplant: The surgeons operate on the donor and recipient under general anesthesia to first remove the kidney from the donor and then place it into the abdomen of the recipient. Once the surgery is complete, the incisions are closed and patient moved to recovery.
Minimally invasive kidney transplant: Minimally invasive living donor nephrectomy, minimally invasive video-assisted (MIVAKT), minimal-access kidney transplantation (MAKT), and minimal skin incision (MSI) techniques are used to remove donor kidney. Though there are several MI procedures, kidney transplant recipients are still operated through conventional incisions using Gibson incision (GIBI) or hockey-stick incisions (HSI).
Laparoscopic kidney transplant: Laparoscopy another minimally invasive technique usually used to remove the donor kidney in a process called as laparoscopic nephrectomy. The method offers less pain, less noticeable scar and shorter recovery time for the donor. Laparoscopic kidney transplantation (LKT) following transvaginal or abdominal insertion of the kidney is a novel option.
Robotic kidney transplant (RAKT): Robot Assisted Kidney Transplantation is a minimally invasive technique that uses a robotic support to perform the KT. Compared to conventional open kidney transplant surgery, a much smaller incision (about 7cm) is made in RAKT to remove the diseased kidney and insert the donor kidney into the abdomen., and then to stitch the blood vessels and the ureter. Another four or five small (0.5 to 1cm) incisions are used to insert the instruments into the abdomen.

A type of E. coli bacteria produces toxins that can destroy the red blood cells and block the kidneys’ filtering system Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a condition where the red blood cells are destroyed, abnormally. This leads to clogging of the kidney’s filtering system and leads to kidney failure. Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is […]
