Transplant

Factors That Lead To Kidney Transplant

Control of blood sugar levels
Diabetes

Poorly treated diabetes can damage blood vessel clusters in the kidneys, which filter waste from the blood, over time.

Treating the cause
Chronic Glomerulonephritis

The small filters in kidneys become inflamed and scarred over time (glomeruli).

Polycystic Kidney Disease

Cysts are clusters of fluid-filled sacs that form in the kidneys and obstruct the kidneys' capacity to filter waste materials from the blood.

How A Nephrologist Will Help With Kidney Transplant

A kidney transplant is a procedure that involves replacing a damaged kidney with a healthy donor kidney. Kidney Consultants of El Paso works with patients to maintain their kidney health in order to prevent serious complications. Our treatment strategies include recovery, procedures, medications as well as diet changes that reduce the amount of stress to the donor kidney in order to preserve kidney health.

How A Kidney Transplant Is Performed

Undergoing kidney transplant surgery

Over the years, various techniques for kidney transplant surgery have been developed. An incision is usually made in the side of the receiving patient. Surgeons may now make as small an incision as feasible thanks to advances in surgical tools and techniques. Your transplant surgeon will go over the process with you, explain their approach, and answer any questions you may have.

Family history
Supervision after Surgery

For the first several months after the transplant, our transplant specialist and nephrologists will require numerous follow-up visits and testing. We want to make sure your kidney is in good working order.

Taking care of your new kidney

It is vital to maintain healthier habits after receiving a new kidney in order for your new kidney to work correctly and provide you with years of service. Taking needed prescriptions is a part of the transplant aftercare. Immunosuppressants will be prescribed by your doctor, and you may need to take them for as long as you have your replacement kidney. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, tell us about them.
