Technology is advancing every day. Last July, surgeons in Sweden implanted the first synthetic organ transplant of a trachea (breathing tube), which was coated with stem cells from the patient.
Someday, a synthetic kidney may become available.

Welome to EmpowHER. After having a kidney transplant, you will have to take medicines that suppress your immune system such as prednisone, azathioprine, tacrolimus, and cyclosporine, to help prevent your body from rejecting the new kidney. You will need to take these medicines for the rest of your life. Because these medicines weaken your immune system, you will have an increased risk for serious infections. There is also the chance that your body may still reject your new kidney even if you take these medicines. If this happens, you will have to start dialysis and possibly wait for another kidney transplant. It might be good speak to a doctor where you live, he might help you know when will this be available in india.
Here are some resources for you
