Kidney Transplant

Kidney Transplant
Established in 2009 and having a cumulative experience of more than 2900 Kidney transplants.
We at Medanta are a high volume Kidney transplant centre and with the state of the art Infrastructure and perform about 250 plus Kidney transplants every year.
Using cutting-edge technology of the latest Surgical Robots( Da Vinci Xi/Si) and modern Operating rooms, we deliver outcomes comparable to the standard of care worldwide.
The first “Robotic renal transplant” in the world was performed at Medanta by Dr Rajesh Alhawat under regional hypothermia procedure which is now being followed worldwide.
A completely minimally invasive Robotic approach to Kidney Transplant recipient surgery and help spread this procedure to the world.
Our procedure has been included in Campbell’s Textbook of Urology and Smith’s Textbook of Urology and others as chapters.

At our institution, we approach kidney transplantation with both expertise and compassion, recognizing the significance of this life-changing procedure in restoring health and vitality. From the initial evaluation to the surgical intervention and postoperative care, every step is meticulously planned and executed with your well-being as our top priority.

Routine Blood group matched transplants
Routine Blood group matched transplants

Routine blood group matched transplants, also known as ABO-compatible transplants, are organ transplants where the donor and recipient have compatible blood groups. The ABO blood group system classifies blood into four major groups: A, B, AB, and O. Compatibility between these blood groups is essential to ensure successful transplantation and prevent rejection reactions.

Cadeveric Transplants and various graft salvage procedures.

Cadaveric transplants, utilizing organs from deceased donors, often require various graft salvage procedures to optimize outcomes. Techniques such as machine perfusion, hypothermic preservation, and novel preservation solutions are employed to maintain organ viability during procurement and transport. Additionally, graft salvage procedures may involve meticulous surgical interventions to address vascular complications, ischemic injury, or delayed graft function post-transplantation, highlighting the importance of innovative approaches and multidisciplinary collaboration in maximizing the utilization of cadaveric organs and improving transplant success rates.

Paediatric Kidney Transplants
Paediatric Kidney Transplants

Pediatric kidney transplants are complex procedures that require specialized care tailored to the unique needs of children. Donor selection, surgical techniques, and postoperative management are carefully adapted to account for the child's size, growth potential, and long-term health considerations. Close monitoring of immunosuppressive medication dosages, growth parameters, and renal function is crucial to ensure optimal graft function and minimize complications.

Swap transplants
Swap transplants

Swap kidney transplants, also known as paired kidney exchange or kidney swap, involve a chain of transplantations where incompatible donor-recipient pairs exchange kidneys with other pairs to enable compatible matches. This innovative approach allows recipients to receive a compatible kidney from a stranger while their incompatible donor provides a kidney to another recipient in need.

Our Expertise
ABO Incompatible Transplants
ABO Incompatible Transplants

ABO incompatible transplants, where the donor and recipient have mismatched blood types, present unique challenges in organ transplantation. Advanced desensitization protocols, including plasmapheresis and immunomodulatory therapies, are employed to reduce pre-existing antibodies in the recipient, minimizing the risk of hyperacute rejection. Despite these interventions, careful monitoring and tailored immunosuppressive regimens are essential to prevent antibody-mediated rejection post-transplantation, underscoring the critical role of interdisciplinary teams in achieving successful outcomes in ABO incompatible kidney transplants.

Surgically and Immunologically challenging Transplants
Surgically and Immunologically challenging Transplants

Performing kidney transplants with significant age disparities or complex medical histories demands meticulous preoperative assessment and tailored immunosuppressive strategies, while procedures involving ABO-incompatible or sensitized donors require advanced desensitization protocols and innovative surgical techniques to mitigate rejection risks, emphasizing the necessity for interdisciplinary collaboration in managing complex transplant cases.

Robotic Kidney Transplant
Robotic Kidney Transplant

Robotic kidney transplants utilizing the Da Vinci Xi and Si surgical systems represent cutting-edge advancements in minimally invasive surgery. These state-of-the-art robotic platforms offer enhanced precision, dexterity, and visualization, enabling surgeons to perform complex procedures with greater accuracy and control. In robotic kidney transplantation, the system facilitates meticulous dissection and suturing of blood vessels and ureters, reducing the risk of complications and improving graft function. The minimally invasive approach results in smaller incisions, less blood loss, and faster recovery times for patients compared to traditional open surgery. As technology continues to evolve, robotic-assisted kidney transplants hold promise for further optimizing outcomes and expanding access to transplantation for patients worldwide.

Second/ Third Transplants
Second/ Third Transplants

Second or third kidney transplants, also known as re-transplantation, are complex procedures performed when a previous kidney transplant fails or experiences complications such as rejection, chronic allograft nephropathy, or technical issues. These surgeries involve unique challenges, including increased risk of immunological sensitization, vascular adhesions, and scar tissue formation from previous surgeries. Careful evaluation of the patient's overall health, immunological status, and compatibility with potential donors is essential to optimize outcomes.
