Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplantation is one of the important surgical procedures to save the lives of people suffering from severe kidney failure. The main function of the kidneys is to purify the body from excess toxins, and if the kidney is unable to perform its primary function, it can lead to various health problems, as toxins and harmful fluids accumulate in the body and are not excreted due to kidney failure, resulting in kidney failure and the necessity of kidney transplantation.
