Hi,thanks for query.First of all get your self thoroughly examined.Your both kidneys must be properly functioning.Stem cell us an upcoming thing,but at present there are very few centers in world does this.The best thing is talk to your doctor and discuss this at length.There are no problems to the donor in future if his other kidney is doing well.You are asking about transplant at Ahmedabad kidney institute,which is one the premier institute for this ,there is no need to worry about this.Still if you have some queries in your mind,please write me a,I practice in Ahmadabad only.bye.
