Kidney transplant is a surgical procedure that replaces a diseased kidney(s) with a healthy donor kidney. It is a common organ transplant surgery that takes over the function of two kidneys that failed.
Kidney transplant becomes vital when patients reach a severe chronic kidney disease, known as renal failure than cannot be reversed by another treatment method.
