Kidney transplant or renal transplant is the organ transplant of a kidney into a patient with end-stage
kidney disease (ESRD). Kidney transplant is typically classified as deceased-donor (formerly known as
cadaveric) or living-donor transplantation depending on the source of the donor organ. Living-donor kidney
transplants are further characterized as genetically related (living-related) or non-related (living-unrelated)
transplants, depending on whether a biological relationship exists between the donor and recipient.
Before receiving a kidney transplant, a person with ESRD must undergo a thorough medical evaluation to make sure
that they are healthy enough to undergo transplant surgery. If they are deemed a good candidate, they can be
placed on a waiting list to receive a kidney from a deceased donor. Once they are placed on the waiting list,
they can receive a new kidney very quickly, or they may have to wait many years; in the United States, the average
waiting time is three to five years.During transplant surgery, the new kidney is usually placed in the lower
abdomen (belly); the person’s two native kidneys are not usually taken out unless there is a medical reason to do so.
