Often kidney function is not optimized and advanced chronic kidney diseases is diagnosed. Such patients have three options available to manage this problem-hemo dialysis, peritoneal dialysis or kidney transplant. Depending on age and the stage of the kidney disease, a nephrologist will be able to decide course of treatment. A successful kidney transplant when indicated provides better quality of life as it prevents long-term issues related to dialysis.
A relatively new procedure laparoscopic donor nephrectomy which is minimally invasive is performed in donor surgeries for transplantation. In this procedure the donor’s kidney is surgically removed through a keyhole.This becomes a boon for the donor since the recovery process is very quick.
