Nephrologist 's  Response
Hi young man. I am not sure which part of the world you are mailing from. In India, the situation of possible unrelated transplant varies depending on the state. I practice in Karnataka and it is very strict here (for the right reasons) and we don't do any unrelated transplants. I will be surprised if any nephrologist/ transplant team will agree to do the transplant openly in a public forum (even if they will be able to help you). You are better off making enquiries personally, and unfortunately I can be of very little help here. If you want to persue related transplant, I will be able to help you. At Narayana Hrudayalaya we run one of the cheapest package (Rs 2.5 - 2.7 Lakh depending on whether you want general/ semi-private bed, plus about Rs70K for donor work up and laproscopic nephrectomy and additional 40K for possible induction immunosuppression if the HLA match is not good). Total cost at our centre probably will work out between 3.5 - 4 Lakh which is very cheap. Most other centres that I know off charge upwards of Rs 6.5 Lakh. Regards and good luck.

General & Family Physician Dr. Masroor Mir Hussain's  Response
You have to first consult a nephrologist in any hospital with the patient and the donor. Tests will have to be carried out to check if the kidney transplant will work. They will also guide you on other formalities you would have to undertake and also the cost which may vary between different hospitals.
