People with end-stage renal failure are not able to live without treatment. There are two treatment alternatives for these patients, dialysis and kidney transplantation. The choice of these treatment alternatives should be decided by consultation with the physician, patient and family. Dialysis is a treatment that keeps the patient alive. But no machine can perform all the functions of the natural organ. Therefore, kidney transplantation has great advantages both in terms of the duration of the patient's life and in terms of the quality of life he lives.
Patients are freed from the restrictions that limit their life, and continue their lives as healthy people who are fed freely. Their work and social life return to normal. They will now have the opportunity to allocate the long periods they spend in Treatment Centers for dialysis. They live longer. It should be emphasized that kidney transplant costs are much less than dialysis. If possible, it is best to complete the preparations and perform the surgery in a very short time before opening the fistula and starting dialysis.
