Let’s face it, there is no cure for kidney failure. But with consistent quality treatment, it need not be the end of the world. It is still possible for patients to live long and fulfilling lives.
Kidney transplantation is a surgical procedure that places a healthy kidney from a donor into the patient’s body. The kidney can come from a living donor or from someone who has passed on recently. Living donors are usually family members. Regardless, the donor and recipient must be evaluated thoroughly to ensure that there is a good match.
