Nephrologist 's  Response
Renal failure is not equivalent to Transplantation. First of all he should be assessed for stage of Renal failure and then nephrologist decides whether he needs conservative management or dialysis. If dialysis is inevitable then transplantation can be done provided there are no contraindications. First of all consult nephrologist. Best of luck
