Kidney transplantation is a surgical treatment in which a healthy kidney obtained from a living or deceased donor is grafted into a patient with end-stage chronic kidney disease to restore the functions of the kidney.

One year after transplantation, more than 95% of patients do not require dialysis, and they generally have a reasonably good quality of life.
