Objectives. Kidney transplantation is the best treatment method associated with improved quality of life and better survival for patients with end-stage renal disease. We started performing kidney transplantations in November 2010. We have performed 19 kidney transplantations so far. Fourteen of these were from living donors and five from deceased donors. Here, we present our initial experiences with 1.4 kidney transplant recipients from living donor kidney transplantations.
