What Is the Cost of Kidney Transplant

What Is the Cost of Kidney TransplantWhen one person doesn’t have functioning kidneys or a way to replace kidneys’ work, he or she may want to receive a kidney transplant. However, kidney transplant operation can be extremely expensive. Do you know the cost of kidney transplant?

How much does one kidney transplant cost? The cost is different in various countries and regions. For example, it is much cheaper in India than in USA. According to UNOS, the first-year billed charges for one kidney transplant are above 260,000 in USA. The charges will be much lower in India. However, this isn’t the total cost of kidney transplant. (To know kidney transplant cost in different countries, you can consult the doctor online directly.)

Here, we should know that our body treats transplanted kidney as one foreign organ, so the immune system will reject it. If uncontrolled effectively, rejection reaction will cause transplanted kidneys to fail again. To prevent this, patients need to take anti-rejection medicines after kidney transplant. All of these medicines are not cheap.

The following is the cost of some anti-rejection medicines. Of course, the actual costs may be higher or lower than the figures listed below:

- Prograf: The total cost is about $1,340 every month

- Cellcept: The total cost is about $1064 every month

- Prednisone: The total cost is about $12 every month

Compared with kidney dialysis, a successful kidney transplant does improve the life quality of kidney failure patients, and it also saves patients’ money in the long run. However, the total cost is still quite high for most kidney failure patients, especially when they don’t have matched kidney donor in their own family.

Fortunately, with the development of medical technology, some other therapies are created as the alternative to kidney transplant. If patients still have remaining kidney function and urine output, it means they still have chance to repair their own kidneys and rebuild their kidney structure.
