Kidney transplantation is one of the treatments for end-stage kidney disease.
Like all treatments, it is not suitable for everyone. Because of the surgery itself, and the drugs required to help maintain a healthy kidney transplant, one has to be in reasonable medical condition to have a transplant. From our practice, at Melbourne Kidney Specialists, we are currently managing almost a hundred kidney transplant patients. We are experienced in assessing, educating, and helping patients negotiate treatment pathways. These are done in conjunction with major transplant centres. Kidney transplants come from either or live or deceased donors, and can include both genetically related and genetically unrelated individuals.
