Is kidney transplant better than dialysis?

My wife is suffering from CRF for at least 3 years. Her present creatine leve is 7.5, Blood Urea 169, Hb% 5.9, Sugar (fasting) 89 and BP varying between 130/80 and 160/90. Her other parameters, like Lipid profile, are more or less normal.
<Now, I wish to have Kidney transplantation at your place for my wife, instead of giving Dialysis at regular intervals. I am ready to donate my kidney. My blood group is O+ and my wife's is A+.

How to proceed in this case ? Wish to know your protocol in this case.

Urologist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM. As an Urologist and kidney transplant surgeon,i fully understand your anxiety.
You should write your wife's age and report of kidney biopsy.
Your wife's anemia has to be corrected with erythropoeitin injection and plasma transfusion. If you can get a A+ group,and HLA matching donor,it would be ideal.In India,you need clearance from an ethical committee,
for organ donation.Go to the nearest nephrologist for dialysis,and further transplantation decision can be taken. Wish you well.
If you've any doubts,send a direct question in my name,with all reports.
Dr.Matthew J. Mangat.
