Alicante hospital achieves kidney donor accreditation

ALICANTE’S General Hospital has been accredited by the National Transplant Organisation to carry out cross-renal transplants using live kidney donors.

It means it becomes the second hospital in the region, after Valencia’s La Fe, to perform this type of transplant. Only 20 national hospitals are accredited for the procedure, meaning that Alicante has exceeded the level of excellence in the care of patients requiring a kidney transplant.

The use of less invasive surgical techniques and the study and care of the donor (before, during and after the operation) has allowed for the increase of this kind of transplant, since the possible complications to the donor have declined significantly and kidney donation is considered a low risk procedure.
