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.
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.
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.
