Facilities

Renal Transplant

Kidney transplant is one among the few recommended treatment options that offers the best prospects, given that the transplanted kidney functions successfully. It is advised when the damage cannot be managed medically anymore. The diseased kidney is replaced with a healthy one received from either a living or non-living donor. During the operation, the kidney is placed in the patient’s pelvis rather than the usual kidney location in the back. The artery that carries blood to the kidney and the vein that removes blood from it are surgically connected to two blood vessels in the pelvis. The ureter, or tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder, is transplanted through an incision in the bladder.

The process, from evaluation to organ transplantation, at Aster MIMS is initiated by team of doctors, surgeons, nurses, case managers and other clinicians and is well managed at every stage helping the patient return to a full and productive life. On completion of the implantation, the person will be advised to take immunosuppressant medicine every day for a period of time to prevent rejection of the kidney.

Laparoscopic Urology

Most of the traditional urological procedures are done as open surgeries that require large incisions, hospitalization and longer recovery period. Laparoscopic procedures that have been introduced recently are minimally invasive, seeking lesser hospital stay and faster recovery. Laparoscopic procedures are usually applied to many conditions that affect urologic organs including kidney, ureter, prostate, lymph nodes, adrenal gland and bladder.
