TWENTY-five years ago John Caldwell gave his wife Jeanette much more than just his heart — he also gave her his kidney. Having paved the way as Victoria’s first non-related pair to take part in a transplant, the couple are going stronger than ever and thrilled their devotion has paved the way for many others to be saved since. 25 years ago, John gave Jeanette his heart...and a kidney. The Caldwells have got a bond like no other. When Jeanette’s kidneys began failing in 1990 and her mother and sister were found not to match, John took a glance at the donor card and mentioned he just happened to also have B+ blood. While only one previous non-related kidney transplant had taken place in Australia, tests soon revealed the couple also happened to both carry two rare antigens that made them a perfect match. After nine months of testing, physical and psychological preparation, the doctors couple the chance to undertake the pioneering transplant at St Vincent’s Hospital just in time for exit eighth wedding anniversary. “The kidney hasn’t faulted,” Jeanette told the Herald Sun ahead of today’s 25th transplant anniversary.

The Kidney & Hypertension Group are leaders in providing state of the art dialysis at home-Peritoneal Dialysis. We have had the area's largest PD program for over 20 years. Dialysis at home has many advantages allowing the freedom to schedule your dialysis at a time that works for you. Most patients choose to do dialysis at night while they sleep. No blood. No needles. The vast majority of our working patients continue to work and are able to care for their families. Retired patients love the convenience of packing up and going on trips to visit family and friends. We expertly tailor your dialysis to exactly what you need. And we continue to fine tune your prescription each month at your monthly visit with your doctor.

It's not enough that the doctors of The Kidney & Hypertension Group are voted Broward and Palm Beach's "Top Kidney Doctors". Our doctors also utilize nearly 50% less in charges to your insurance company than the average nephrologist in the area. How is this possible? Simple. We consider everything-what we order, what medications we choose, and how often you are asked to return to the office with always your health as our top priority but we also consider the huge economic burden of unnecessary costs that add up and contribute to patient inability to be compliant. http://spotlighthealth.com/g/fl/fort_lauderdale/nephrologist
