Kidney transplantation has to be registered as per legal procedures under live organ transplantation acts and this is done by the hospital doing the surgery. At first you should be examined by a board of doctors in a hospital authorised to carry out kidney transplants. For this you may contact corporate hospitals in chennai and know which ones do transplantation.
After this the board has to clear your relative as a genuine kidney recipient. Then there are options of getting a kidney form a close relative or having to wait as per the serial number and availability of a kidney in the waiting transplant register. For a donor within the family. the donor is screened and must be found fit for donation. If yes then after doing blood and tissue matching and imaging studies, the transplantation surgery is conducted by the transplantation teams. After transplantation, the recipient has to stay for a while and the transplant acceptance or rejection is looked for after surgery.
For kidney from unknown donor, there is always a long waiting list. It is illegal to pay for a kidney and get it transplanted from an unrelated donor.
