Kidney Hospitals in Chennai

A kidney/ renal surgery or transplantation is the transplant of a kidney done to a patient who is at the end-stage of the kidney disease. The patients suffering from kidney diseases always require superior quality care, hope and guidance. Typically, the kidney hospitals in Chennai classify the living donor or deceased donor depending on the source of the donor organ.

If a patient has a general health status to withstand the major operation, the chances are more for transplant success and the patient should also be aware and willing to comply by taking immunosuppressant medications to prevent rejection of the new organ by their body’s immune system after the transplant.
