Kidney transplantation or renal transplantation is the organ transplant of a kidney into a patient with end-stage renal disease. A kidney transplant requires an operation that places a healthy kidney in your body. The transplanted kidney takes over the work of the two kidneys that failed, so you no longer need dialysis.
