Kidney transplants, which have become an urgent necessity in Turkey and around the world, are performed at the Acıbadem Organ Transplant Centers.
DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT SERVICES:
The specialist radiology and anesthesiologists at the Acıbadem Kidney Transplant Centers provide a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment.
The kidney transplant surgeries at Acıbadem Organ Transplant Centers are performed on donors and recipients using laparoscopic (closed) methods. A small incision is made in the groin of the donor after which the kidney is removed using laparoscopy. This method reduces the risk of post-surgery infection as the incisions made are small. This method also helps the healing process.
Donors who undergo laparoscopic surgery are discharged the following day and are expected to resume their usual day to day routine within a week. The recipient of a transplanted kidney is discharged approximately one week following the procedure.
