Aug 26, 2018 · PKD kidneys removed at time of transplant in Transplants

I am hoping to have the same surgery. (Bilateral double nephrectomy, laproscopically, with simultaneous live donor kidney transplant) We live in Washington but the transplant center here wants to cut me from sternum to pubic bone, take diseased kidneys out, have me heal and do dialysis for 3 months and then have my live donor kidney transplant. We are in the process of making Mayo Clinic in Arizona our primary transplant place. We have 3 daughters so being away for 6 weeks will be difficult but we believe this way of doing surgery will be way less traumatic for my body. I’m excited to get this done! I can’t wait to start feeling better
