    I am a transplant surgeon at the University of Illinois, We have new technology that can give opportunity to obese patient on dialysis to get a renal transplant with similar risk to those patients whose weight is in the normal range. Robotic kidney transplantation offers minimal incision, at different location to avoid the are close to the groin. Our results are comparable to open surgery. We also offer simultaneous gastric sleeve surgery with robotic kidney transplant to help correct the obesity and protect the new kidney from Hypertension and diabetes.
    I really need to spread the word for those in need, don’t care what state or country you are from.
