A 24-year-old man underwent a robotic kidney transplant at Kauvery Hospital

Kauvery Main Hospital Alwarpet , a leading multi speciality healthcare chain in Tamil Nad announced its successful robotic kidney transplant performed on a man aged 24.The young man was on dialysis for the past three years.  The individual also had a congenital condition known as reflux disease and a dilated ureter which was an underlying factor for many challenges in his journey to recovery. 

After a thorough evaluation of his medical history and considering potential risks the transplant team at Kauvery Hospital planned a transplant sparing his native Kidneys, thus minimizing the extensive procedures. The patient’s father was found as a suitable donor and the advanced robotic technology was used to perform the transplant procedure. 

A robotic kidney transplant at Kauvery Hospital involves a minimally invasive approach, utilizing a small incision of approximately 5 centimetres. Through this the surgeon implants the donor kidney into the abdomen and meticulously connects the blood vessels and ureters to the recipient's body. This innovation provides higher accuracy and precision, faster recovery, less pain, minimal scars,  shorter hospital stay, and one can resume daily activities soon,” says Dr Swaminathan Sambandam, Lead - Multi Organ Transplant , Kauvery Group of Hospital. 

Kauvery Hospital remains dedicated to transforming the field of kidney transplantation and continues to spearhead advancements in healthcare. I appreciate Dr Swaminathan and his team for providing the ideal solutions to high risk patients, such as in this scenario,” says Dr AravindanSelvaraj, Co Founder and Executive Director Kauvery Hospital.
