What is a Kidney Transplant?

If the renal function drops below 10 to 15 %, waste matters (urotoxins) are amassed in the body, threatening life, and this condition is called end-stage renal failure. In this case, hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, and renal transplantation are necessary. Kidney transplantation can improve the quality of life and help patients return to a normal life.
