Kidney Transplantation Center

Our staff specialist members of the kidney transplant team comprises general surgeons, nephrologists, infectious disease specialists,
pediatricians, nuclear medicine specialists, pathologists and radiodiagnostic specialists. With an experience of over 2000 successful
kidney transplants, our center provide a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment.
The kidney transplant surgeries at Ege Kidney Transplant Center are performed on donors and recipients using laparoscopic (closed)
methods. A small incision in the groin of the donor provides access to remove the donor kidney with 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.
