Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplantation surgery
Every year lakhs of Indians are afflicted by kidney failure. A vast majority of these patients continue to die of the problem due to lack of access to tertiary care or an inability to afford it. Patients suffering from kidney failure require surgical care at every step. Most patients will undergo vascular access surgery called AV Fistula or arteriovenous fistula. This forms the cornerstone of dialysis treatment and enables easy dialysis. Patients who opt for peritoneal dialysis can have a CAPD catheter placed for longterm home dialysis. But the best option for treatment remains kidney transplantation. Transplantation surgery is now a very successful procedure.

Dr Sanjay Sinha has performed about 375 transplantations in all kinds of patients including those with abnormal lower urinary tracts and in children. One of the early transplantations was a child whose grandfather donated a kidney! In 2009, the unit started performing laparoscopic donor nephrectomies to reduce donor morbidity further.

Dr Sinha contributed a chapter entitled ‘Renal Transplantation in Indian Women’ in the book “Frontiers in Obstetrics and Gynecology in the year 1999 published by Jaypee Brothers. The latest edition of Morris’ Textbook of Kidney Transplantation has cited a publication by Dr Sanjay Sinha on page 653 (8th Edition, 2008)
