Title: Kidney transplant factsheet: a treatment option (PDF file) (Links to English resource)
Summary: When kidney failure becomes very advanced, your kidneys are so damaged they can no longer do their job. A transplant is a treatment for kidney failure but it is not a cure. A transplant potentially offers a more active life and a longer life, free from dialysis as well as dietary restrictions. However, your new kidney needs a lifetime of care.
