We are proud to provide private transplantation services for both the liver and kidneys, including private kidney transplant and private liver transplant in the UK. From initial consultation through to surgery and aftercare, our transplant team is with you every step of the way to give you the best health outcome.  

A successful transplant can be life-changing for the recipient, which is why our dedicated transplant team is at-hand to ensure our patients’ safety and comfort. Whether you require a private kidney scan or need to consult with a kidney specialist in London or a liver specialist in London, our team of highly trained, specialist transplant surgeons and dedicated transplant coordinator will ensure that your needs are met with utmost care and expertise.

When a kidney is transplanted from a living donor, it will usually last on average between 20 to 25 years. However, this can vary depending on the age and overall health of both the donor and the recipient.

Your original kidneys will usually be left inside the body following a transplant. They will only be removed if they are causing problems such as pain, infections, or high blood pressure. Your new donor kidney will be placed in the lower groin area.

It is possible to have multiple kidney transplants if your donor kidney stops working. However, this is dependent on your age and overall health status.

Patients who receive their first donor kidney at a younger age will likely need more than one transplant surgery in their lifetime.

A liver ultrasound scan is used to produce images of your liver and its blood vessels. It is helpful for identifying abnormalities in the liver and can be used to diagnose conditions such as liver cancer, hepatitis, or cirrhosis.

An MRI scan uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the liver, which can be used to help identify abnormalities. It is useful for diagnosing both malignant and non-malignant lesions on the liver.
