A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure in which a healthy kidney from a living or deceased donor is surgically implanted into a person whose kidneys are no longer functioning properly.


The function of the kidneys is to filter waste products from the blood and remove them from the body through urine. When a person's kidneys are damaged or diseased, they can no longer perform this function effectively.


A kidney transplant can help improve the quality of life for someone suffering from kidney failure by restoring normal kidney function. The transplant is performed under general anesthesia, and it usually takes about 2-4 hours. After the transplant, the patient will need to take immunosuppressant drugs to prevent rejection of the new kidney.



S L Raheja Hospital is a well-known and reputable organ transplant hospital in Mumbai, India. They have a dedicated kidney transplant department that offers state-of-the-art facilities and expert surgeons and staff.


Patients choose S L Raheja for their kidney transplant in Mumbai for a number of reasons, including their reputation for successful transplants, their advanced medical technology, and their commitment to providing personalized care to each patient.


It's also worth mentioning the hospital's strong focus on patient's well-being, post-transplant care, and the team of highly qualified and experienced doctors and nurses to ensure the best outcome for patients. Additionally, the hospital's affiliation with leading transplant centers across the globe helps in providing access to advanced treatments and techniques.


S L Raheja Hospital is a top-notch choice for kidney transplant patients because of their success rate, advanced technology, individualized care, and reputation for excellence in organ transplants.

A candidate for a kidney transplant is typically an individual with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or chronic kidney disease (CKD) that is severe enough to require dialysis or a kidney transplant to maintain their health.


The candidate must be physically and mentally able to withstand the surgery and recovery process and be willing to comply with the necessary medical treatments and follow-up care. In addition, the candidate's overall health and medical history will be evaluated to determine if they are a suitable candidate for a transplant.

There are two main types of kidney transplants: living donor transplants and deceased donor transplants.


  1. Living Donor Transplant: In a living donor transplant, a healthy individual donates one of their kidneys to the recipient. The donor can be a family member, a friend, or even a stranger. The donated kidney can come from a living donor or a living related donor. Living donor transplants have several advantages over deceased donor transplants, such as a shorter waiting time for a transplant, better long-term outcomes, and less chance of rejection.

  2. Deceased Donor Transplant: In a deceased donor transplant, the kidney is taken from a person who has recently passed away and whose family has consented to organ donation. The donated kidney is then transplanted into the recipient. Waiting time for a deceased donor transplant can vary greatly depending on the patient's blood type, tissue type, and the availability of a suitable match.

  3. A third less common type of transplant is called a paired donation or a kidney exchange. In this type of transplant, a living donor may not be a match for the intended recipient, but they can still donate their kidney to another person in exchange for a compatible kidney for their loved one.


It's worth noting that, depending on the patient's medical condition, there are different surgical techniques that can be used for transplantation. Some of the most common are standard transplant, laparoscopic transplant and robot-assisted transplant.
