Former NxStage Patient Nikolas Gieske Celebrates Kidney Transplant
Date:5/14/2012

LAWRENCE, Mass., May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NxStage® Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, today announced that former NxStage® System One™ patient Nikolas Gieske of Mequon, Wisconsin, received a kidney transplant following four successful years of more frequent home hemodialysis with the System One.

The freedom to do his dialysis treatments on his own schedule enabled Nikolas to live more independently while pursuing his college degree at the Milwaukee School of Engineering, where he is currently enrolled in his junior year and studying software engineering. In September of 2011, Nikolas, who was on a transplant list, learned there was a "perfect-match" kidney available for him, and underwent the transplant procedure shortly after. 

"I only wanted to pursue a kidney transplant if it was a perfect match for me because I already had a high quality of life as a System One patient," says Nikolas Gieske. "I believe my more frequent therapy schedule played a role in helping me to be healthy enough to receive my new kidney. The ability of the System One to take a complex medical treatment, and engineer it to be easy to use has inspired me to pursue a career in engineering. I hope to someday be able to design similar products to help people."

In addition to his parents, Nikolas' brother, Mitchell, helped Nikolas receive treatments with the System One as one of his trained partners. Through his experience as a dialysis care partner, Mitchell was inspired to pursue a career in medicine, and was recently accepted on a full academic scholarship to the Milwaukee School of Engineering School of Nursing. Mitchell will join his brother as a student in Fall
