Renal transplantation in urology

Daniel Shoskes


It is my pleasure to introduce the current issue of Translational Andrology and Urology with a special focus on Renal Transplantation in Urology. The role of the Urologist in transplantation is variable. In some centers such as ours, Urologists perform the surgery, manage the immunosuppression and care for post-operative complications. In other centers, Urologists have only a peripheral role, consulting for the medical and surgical complications that can follow the procedure and immunosuppression. The articles in this issue address a variety of preoperative, perioperative and postoperative issues for Urologists at every level of involvement.
