Imparting fresh lease of life to patients, organ transplantation is indeed a life-saving blessing!


Organ transplantation is certainly the most remarkable achievement in the field of modern medicine. A successful transplant can give a fresh lease of life to someone. However, if you’re looking forward to an organ transplant, you would probably be submerged in a lot of emotions. Experienced medics and industry experts of renowned hospitals enumerate all that you need to know before undergoing an organ transplant.


Basically, organ transplantation is a medical procedure which involves replacing a damaged or missing organ. It is deemed as the most effective treatment for end state organ failure, such as liver and heart failure. The procedure is based on a surgical method of removing a healthy organ from the donor and transplanting it into the recipient’s body.


Organ transplantation from sound donors, carried out with good health coverage has negligible risks. They believe that it is important to ensure rigorous selection procedures, careful surgical nephrectomy and follow-ups of the donor to ensure the same. Following their state-of-the-art methodology and approach, they have achieved a cent percent rate of successful organ transplantation cases.


However, chances of organ rejection and other potential risks associated with organ transplantation makes it imperative to acquire complete information about your disease and this procedure, so that you are a well-informed patient. An organ is said to be rejected when it is attacked by the recipient’s immune system.

 The most commonly transplanted organs include:

  • Heart
  • Intestine
  • Kidney
  • Liver
  • Lung
  • Pancreas

Various organs are matched using a number of characteristics like the type of blood and size of the organ needed. Several other factors like the distance between the donor and recipient, the medical history, current health status of the patient, etc, are also taken into consideration. A number of hospitals like Apollo, Fortis, Artemis, etc, are well-equipped with advanced database, providing patients facilities to register, match donated organs on the transplant waiting list, and manage the data of transplant patients before and after the surgery.


The transition of a patient to a normal healthy life through organ transplantation, elevates the process of donation beyond the world of medicine and surgery, making it a life-saving blessing in the true sense.
