Kidney transplant cost in Turkey

What is necessary to do before going for a renal transplant in Turkey?

Before choosing Turkey for renal replacement, it is necessary to have a donor .

How to understand if the donor is right for you?

Both donor and recipient have to undergo preliminary diagnostics before getting a kidney transplant in this country. The set of diagnostic procedures usually includes:

For both donor and recipient

  • blood typing (ABO compatibility)
  • tissue (genetic) typing
  • cross-matching blood test
  • physical examination
  • blood tests
  • 24-hour urine collection
  • electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • chest X-ray
  • CT (computed tomography) of the abdomen
  • follow-up blood test 3 or 7 days after CT

Note! It's better to consult with your doctor before undergoing the tests.

How to choose the best hospital for the organ transplantation in Turkey for your case?

If you are looking for the best Turkish kidney hospital, check out:

  • Hospital's quality marks

Leading medical facilities for a kidney transplant in Turkey should have international or local certificates/accreditations that confirm high quality and results of renal transplantation in the facility.

Turkey is the No.1 country, where medical centers have the most significant number of JCI (Joint Commission International) certificates. JCI is the world-leading promoter of healthcare standards and patients' safety in medical facilities over the globe.

  • Doctors' experience

Look for a surgeon with vast experience and high results. The more successful operations a nephrologist has performed, the higher chance your operation also will be successful. You can find info in doctor's expertise and success rates in their CVs.

  • Rate of successful kidney transplants

Pay attention at this index before choosing a hospital. It shows the number of renal replacements that were performed without severe complications, level of patients' safety during the operation, the proportion between the number of transplanted organs and percentage of their acceptance by the body.

Why is the price for renal transplantation in Turkey low?

Turkey provides one of the cheapest kidney transplants not only in the Near East but in the world. What is the reason for this? 3 reasons explain such affordability of kidney transplant in Turkey:

  • general price policy within the country
  • average local citizens' income
  • renal transplant packages.

The kidney transplantation packages in Turkey involve the surgery itself, doctor's fee, necessary medications, in-hospital stay, postoperative examination, transfers from/to an airport, and sometimes meals.

Does the price affect the quality of kidney transplant here?

No, by no means. Turkish kidney doctors perform reasonable organ transplant without quality loss. That's why this country is so popular with international patients who are looking for renal transplantation.

Because of the great demand for kidney transplantation, doctors apply innovative approaches and instruments that make the surgery even more precise and safer.

How long should I stay in Turkey after the operation?

Turkish nephrologists perform kidney transplant with the laparoscopic method — the organ is transplanted through 2 small incisions in the size of 2 euro cent. A little camera is introduced into one incision, and a surgical tool for kidney transplantation — into the another one. The surgery is minimally invasive; only two subtle cosmetic scars remain.

Due to the low traumatism of the operation, the recipient stays in a hospital approximately 1 week and then returns home. The donor comes back home in 2 days after the procedure.

Is kidney transplant legal in Turkey?

The renal replacement procedure is entirely legal. BUT! Choose only proven clinics that have permission to perform this operation.

The best Turkish clinics have all the necessary permissions and certificates. They are often checked by the local Ministry of Health, and therefore do not participate in the purchases and sales of organs. The treatment there is transparent and safe.

Pay attention!

Bookimed is not involved in the organs selling and does not respond to requests on organ donation!

You must have a donor before booking a kidney transplant in any hospital.

How much does kidney transplant cost in Turkey?


Doctors calculate the cost of the kidney transplant individually for each patient. The price may depend on the hospital's reputation and doctor's experience. You may get the final kidney transplant cost in Turkey only after the consultation with a doctor.

6 clinics are represented in the ranking. According to their data, the approximate kidney transplant cost is:

  • The average cost in Turkey is $22300. The lowest price is $19000 and the highest — $25000.

First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to the Bookimed staff for organizing the medical examination and coordination during my stay in Turkey, thanks to Olga, she was always in touch, special thanks to Maxim Voloshin. Guys, what you do is invaluable. We flew to the new Istanbul airport from Ashgabat, to the Anadolu clinic for a medical examination. met, the driver was friendly and polite, Erol. True, the clinic is far from the airport and from the center of Istanbul, we arrived in 2.5 hours + traffic jams, for which we crossed the bridge connecting Asia to Europe. The clinic is located in Gebze, the area is quiet. Stayed at the Hyyat Hotel very safe (even scanners are installed at the entrance) and a comfortable hotel. Transport Hotel-Clinic-Hotel once a day at the scheduled time. In the morning we arrived at the Anadola Clinic. They provided the distributor on the first day to Alain. Alena thank you very much. Such a clever translate accurately, was 100% concentrated on work. And on the second and third day they gave another translator, what was her name there, Sevalya or something. That's when we started having problems. She was always busy, called somewhere, missed, in short horror, to some administrative questions, instead of translating, she answered herself as “she thinks,” but Suleiman (along the coordinator of translators) answered all questions correctly. The clinic is comfortable, they did not stay in line for a long time. Doctors are courteous and competent. Diagnoses are made only after a thorough analysis. Results in Turkish, translation can only give in English. The diagnosis was made, the medicine was prescribed (by the way, an interpreter named Sevalya could not translate the diagnosis into Russian). All medicines were purchased in Istanbul. In general, I was satisfied with the medical examination. I advise ...
