Kidney transplantation, if not contraindicated, is the most preferred renal replacement therapy for patients with end stage renal disease. Generally, live related transplantation is associated with longer term survival of the transplantated kidney as well as the patient. However, it is associated with great physical and psychological challenges for the donor. Therefore, an exhaustive physical workup as well comprehensive psychological counselling go a long way for a happy donor as well as recipient. Laparoscopic donor surgery has helped reduce surgical morbidity and improve acceptance. Moreover, to avoid medicolegal issues, exhaustive documentation is necessary.
