Hyderabad based 350 bedded Super Specialty Hospital with NABH & NABL Accreditations & 4lac sft area (largest in AP) - Kamineni Hospital transplant team comprised of Dr. Kamal Kiran-Nephrologists, successfully transplanted the kidney of an A+ donor (father) to an O+ patient (son) which was earlier supposed to be impossible. Termed ABO Incompatible Kidney Transplantation in medical language, this is the first ever such operation in the country done using the Immuno adsorption technique.

Non-matching blood groups are called ABO Incompatible. The operation was performed on a Pune based patient Mr. Deepak, here at Kamineni Hospital in Hyderabad city.

Kidney transplantation or renal transplantation is the organ transplant of a kidney into a patient with the end-stage renal disease. Kidney transplantation is typically classified as deceased donor (formerly known as cadaveric) or living- donor transplantation depending on the source of the donor organ.

Living - donor renal transplants are further characterized as genetically related (living-related) or non-related (living-unrelated) transplants, depending on whether a biological relationship exists between the donor and recipient.

With this the dream of kidney transplant, regardless of the matching has become a reality, bringing hope to several patients, expressed the doctors of Kamineni Hospital with the sense of pride.

The procedure helps us overcome Antibody barriers to Kidney Transplantation. In the past, a transplant could not be successfully done unless the organ donor and recipient had compatible blood types. Because due to blood incompatibility issues, an estimated 30% of related donors were turned down.

Adding further Dr. Kamal Kiran stated that ABO Kidney Transplantation is a rare procedure, but if protocols were implemented to transplant across blood- group barriers, it is estimated that an additional 1500 live donor kidney transplants could be performed each year in India & 250 in Andhra Pradesh.
