The kidney specialist doctor or surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen, near the hip bone. In most cases the kidney specialist doctor does not remove the ineffective kidney.

Kidney Transplant in Chennai
In a kidney transplant laparoscopic surgery the surgeon connects the vein and renal artery to the new location of the kidney. After this, the surgeon restores the blood supply so that the kidney starts working in a proper manner. As a result, the kidney starts producing urine. The surgeon connects the bladder to the urethra from the donor kidney. A typical kidney transplant surgery lasts about three to four hours.
The sufferer can get out of bed the day after kidney transplant surgery. The doctor prescribes absorption of liquids on the day of surgery. The patient can take normal diet after two or three days.
After a stay of about three to five days, the patients can be discharged from the hospital, depending on the condition of the kidney transplant recipient. Gradually the reduction in the discomfort at the place of incision will happen. After three or six weeks the affected person can resume their daily activities, including going back to work.
