Kidney Transplant

Progressive renal failure leading to end stage renal disease requires artificial support such as dialysis or a kidney transplant to sustain life. According to the National Kidney Foundation more than 661,000 Americans have kidney failure and approximately 70% of these individuals are on dialysis. Dialysis changes the lifestyle as well as the health outcomes for patients. On an average, the life expectancy for dialysis patients is 5-10 years.

Kidney transplants can improve the quality of a person’s life as well longevity. Despite the high demand for kidneys, in many states, there is a shortage of kidney donors.

People without significant health conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension, can donate a kidney and live a normal life. Kidney donation does not significantly increase health risks for the donor. Donating a kidney can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
