Pediatrics - Urology

In brief: 3 - 4 hours

Is not a type of surgery to be rushed.
Sometimes problems can be encountered which will prolong surgery, e.G if there are two renal arteries on the donor kidney, or if one or both native kidneys in recipient need to be removed coincident with transplant.
