Organ Transplant Program

Our centre has a very active Multi-Organ Transplant Program, one of a kind in India, performing kidney, liver, pancreas and small bowel transplantation.

Both live donor and cadaver transplants are carried out. Our experienced transplant surgeons have successfully performed more than 100 liver and 500 kidney transplants between them.

The transplant team consists of many well-trained professionals with a lot of experience in organ transplantation.

  • Transplant Surgeons
  • Nephrologists
  • Hepatologists
  • Gastroenterologists
  • Anesthetists
  • Urologists
  • Vascular Surgeons
  • Microbiologist
  • Transplant Nurses
  • Transplant Coordinators
  • Dieticians and other support staff

A multi-disciplinary team approach is one of the special features of our program. Ours is a one-stop center for abdominal organ transplantation providing total care to all our patients.

Before the transplant, our transplant coordinators counsel the patients and their families thoroughly about the entire process. They also undergo a detailed evaluation by multiple specialists to reduce complications and ensure a successful outcome. After the transplant surgery, the patients are admitted to a dedicated ICU and later to a transplant ward, where the nurses and other staff are trained to take care of transplant patients.

We maintain an organ transplant registry at our Centre. All our patients who are waiting for cadaver organs are placed on a waiting list, and organs become available on a shared basis with patients from other hospitals. We are also actively involved in organ awareness campaigns to educate the public and other healthcare workers about organ donation and transplantation. We regularly conduct talks and seminars in schools and colleges, and various other institutions and organisations.

Highlights of our program are:

  • Multi-organ harvesting and transplant under one roof.
  • Highly qualified team of medical experts and support staff's
  • A multi-disciplinary team approach
  • Excellent results comparable with the best centres
  • Very reasonable cost
  • Excellent patient and family support
