What is a Kidney Transplant?

A living donor kidney transplant (LDKT) is a surgical procedure that involves taking a kidney from a healthy living person (the donor) and placing it into the body of someone with end-stage kidney failure (the recipient).

Our team of kidney specialists offer a complete range of medical and surgical treatments, including acute and chronic disease management, end-stage disease management and kidney transplantation.

Why get a living donor kidney transplant

  • Medical Expertise
  • Personalised Care
  • State of The Art Medical Equipment

Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists include 15 senior nephrologists and urologists, and specialised nursing and para-medical staff. They are skilled in evaluating potential donor-recipient pairs before the transplant, providing them with the best care during their hospitalization for the kidney donation / transplant surgery, and following through with them for good post-donation / post-transplant care. The donor does not have to be genetically related to the recipient.

Our experts have the capability and experience to undertake complicated, high-risk transplants such as ABO blood group incompatible and cross-match positive (sensitised) transplants.

Since 1993, more than 500 successful kidney transplantations have been carried out in our patients. We do not have an upper age limit for potential living kidney donors; potential donors above the age of 70 can be considered on a case-by-case basis.

It is our goal to free you from long-term dialysis and enable you to resume a normal and active lifestyle. Living donor kidney transplant offers many advantages, including:

  • A better quality of life, free from the constraints of dialysis
  • Shorter waiting times compared to waiting for a suitable deceased donor.
  • Better survival outcomes, compared to a deceased donor kidney transplant, as the transplanted kidney comes from a healthy living donor
  • In Singapore, it is possible to do an emotionally related kidney transplant. This means that it is legal for friends and relatives to donate a kidney to the ones they love.

We have a Transplant Unit designed to provide transplant patients with comprehensive and specialised care. The Transplant Unit has a dedicated inpatient ward with intensive care unit (ICU) facilities for seamless post-surgery care. Our team of specialised ICU nurses are well-trained to support patients through the entire process from surgery to post-transplant monitoring and recovery.
