Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Nephrology, working with an experienced Nephrologist. I answer on his behalf.

Yes, there is always risk of infection or transplant rejection of the transplanted kidney in susceptible individuals.

No, if your father donates his kidney he would not have any health complications provided his health before donation is good and he do not have any infection post donation.

Hope, I answered your query.
