A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure performed to implant a healthy kidney from another person in a patient of chronic kidney disease. The kidney may come from a deceased organ donor or from a living donor. Family members with a good match may be able to donate one of their kidneys. This type of transplant is called a living transplant. Individuals who donate a kidney can live healthy lives with the remaining kidney.
A person receiving a transplant usually receives only one kidney, but, in rare situations, he or she may receive two kidneys from a deceased donor. In most cases, the diseased kidneys are left in place during the transplant procedure. The transplanted kidney is implanted in the lower abdomen on the front side of the body.

Medications suppress immune system, makes the patient more vulnerable to get infections, Patient may also need antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal medications.
