WHAT IS KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION?
A Kidney Transplantion is a surgical procedure that involves the transplantation of a kidney from a living (related or non-related) or deceased (cadaver) donor, to replace the function of the affected kidneys.  It is the best option of treatment for patients with end-stage kidney failure.  The surgery involves two patients: the recipient and the donor.  Before a kidney transplant, both the recipient and the donor are required to undergo extensive medical and psychosocial evaluations.  This is to ensure the success of the procedure and safety of both patients.

WHO IS PART OF THE TRANSPLANT TEAM?
A Transplant Team is a group of highly skilled doctors, specialized nurses, and allied healthcare providers who are committed to deliver the highest level of care to the patients involved in a kidney transplant.  The team is composed of a Nephrologist, Urologist, Vascular Surgeon, Anesthesiologist, Transplant Coordinator, Transplant Nurse, Psychiatrist, Dietitian, Physiotherapist and Social Workers.

WHAT IS A HOSPITAL TRANSPLANT ETHICS COMMITTEE (HTEC)?
The Hospital Transplant Ethics Committee of Makati Medical Center is an independent body, composed of a group of individuals representing the different sectors of society. It is composed of a Nephrologist, Psychiatrist, Medical Intensivist, Priest, Social Worker, Lawyer, and a Lay Person. The Committee's primary goal is to ensure the welfare, safety, and rights of patients and the hospital's adherence to ethical, moral, religious, cultural and social precepts – in accordance with National and International Ethical Guidelines and Standards.
