Kidney transplant is the treatment of choice for those who have failing kidney function.
Kidney donation is safe. Most people have 2 kidneys and only 1 is needed for survival.
Kidney transplant patients do no have to be on dialysis, but they do have to take a few medications, life long.
Kidney transplant patients are closely followed by Nephrologists.
Kidney transplanted patients live a full, normal and better life than if they are on dialysis treatment.
Kidney transplanted patients have 3 kidneys, most of the time, unless there are medical indications to remove any of the 2 native kidneys.
Kidneys that are transplanted start to work immediately in the recipient body, hence no more dialysis needed.
Kidney transplant has a very good survival rate.
Kidney transplant can be done preemptively i.e. no need to wait to be on dialysis before doing a transplant.
Kidney donation is life donating life.
