Advancements in Kidney Transplant in India

Kidney Transplant in India

Kidney failure is a life-threatening condition faced each year by a growing number of people across the world. When the kidney disease reaches the end stage, commonly known as the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), the only options left are either dialysis or a kidney transplant.

Because the prevalence of CKD or Chronic Kidney Disease is increasing dramatically, demand for kidney transplants is considerably higher than any other organ. There are currently 117,850 people waiting for lifesaving organ transplants in the U.S. Of these, 95,903 await kidney transplants.

Last year, 16,812 kidney transplants took place in the U.S. Of these, 11,043 kidney transplants came from deceased donors and 5,769 came from living donors.

In a country like United States, where the awareness is very high and there are huge number of cadaveric kidney transplants happen, more than 80,000 people still await kidney transplant and last year, 4,903 patients died while waiting for a kidney transplant.

The scenario is grim in other countries, where the awareness for kidney donation is poor, facilities are not available and the cost of kidney transplant is too high.

Fortunately, advancements in the kidney transplant in India have expanded options for suitable donor kidneys in recent years.

As a result, a lot of people from across the world are travelling to India to get the kidney transplant in India in search of affordable and high quality kidney transplant in India.

There should be no financial transaction between the donor and the patient, which means selling and buying of kidney or any organ is strictly prohibited by law.
