Pediatrician 's  Response
Hello
Yes your child might need transplant preferably from an HLA matched sibling/parent.
HLA typing is done before transplant and who so ever is matched(preferably siblings or parents) is the donar to avoid transplant rejection.
It is the treatment of choice in your case so whether young or old,they have to do it for the survival of your child.
We have pediatric nephrologists available all over the world,and also pediatric surgeons,so its their speciality to treat young souls so you dnt need to worry about the age.
About expenses i would say that the procedure itself along with the HLA typing here in pakistan costs around 1-2 million.I dnt know about your country but yes here in Pakistan we have an institute in Karachi city where it is offered with minimum expenses and sometimes free of cost to non-affording patients.
Its called SIUT.
you can take information from your expert doctor also.
I hope it will help :-)
