Kidney transplant procedure will cost anywhere between Rs. 4,00,000 to Rs. 16,00,000.

For formalities pertaining to this procedure and how it will be performed, you can give our article a read - Kidney Transplant.

You will have to find donors on your own, most preferably your relatives, and a non-relative donor would have to get permission from an Authorization Committee established by the state.

 

You can arrange for a donor by searching online!

  • Currently, stem cell therapy for kidney failure treatment has not been granted by approval by the FDA, but otherwise, kidney failure should be treatable by either dialysis or kidney transplant.
    Albeit, some studies show good chances of this treatment being used for patients in near future.
  • Approximate cost estimates:
    • Kidney transplant: Rs. 3,94,000 - Rs. 4,87,000.
    • Dialysis: Rs. 4000 to Rs. 15000 per month.
  • Study material from our end:

We are providing general information since your query isn't much elaborate, and may be our knowledge will help you out, so read ahead.

 

  • For small stones that present with mild symptoms:
    • Only pain relievers, medications and lifestyle modifications will be enough.
       
  • But for bigger stones with extreme/moderate symptoms, you may have to use surgery or minimally invasive treatments to remove stones, such as:
    • Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, where sound wave is used to break stones.
    • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy, which involves surgical removal through incisions.
    • Ureteroscope, thin tube-like equipment carrying camera which will help locate stones so that other tools can be used to remove them.
    • Parathyroid gland surgery, which is used to treat phosphate stones are caused by overactive parathyroid glands.
       
  • No matter what kind of stones you have, we advise:
    • Drinking a lot of water if this is the case.
    • Having a proper diet that is low in salt/animal protein/calcium - but this depends on the type of stones you have.
      Find dieticians - Dietitian/Nutritionists.

 

Discuss details such as your present/past health, family history of diseases, as well as your current medications & supplements.

For nephrologists - Nephrologists.

 

Apart from stone composition/location/symptoms produced by them, there's no other criterion to qualify for any treatment mentioned above, but do discuss the risks these surgeries/treatments can carry, and their correction procedures/compensation, as well as experience with past patients and success rate.

 

For location-specific requirements to find doctors, or any other doubt, do drop us a message anytime you want!

Dialysis, medicines, and managing glucose levels as well as symptoms is the only way she can survive, but kidney failure can't be cured and the prognosis doesn't seems to be good. We hope that she will lead a better life if her symptoms are managed. Approach a nephrologist - Nephrologist in India.

We are extremely sorry for replying late and look up to you for your noble thoughts & causes. As far as donating organs is concerned, in India you would have to take permission from Authorization committee. And if you are below 18 then you would need to have consent of your parents as well. Then you can go to a hospital and consult doctors. If you wish to learn what possible tests you would have to go through for donor-recipient compatibility test, then you can refer this blog - Kidney Transplant cost in India. And this might help you out in terms of finding suitable hospital - Best Kidney Transplant Hospitals in India.
