Liver transplant: Liver transplant, also known as hepatic transplant, is a surgical procedure that aims at replacing the damaged or diseased liver of a person or a portion of it and replacing the same with a healthy lobe taken from a suitable donor. Liver transplant is usually the last resort of treatment when other options fail to give the desired results.

 

Kidney transplant: Kidney transplant is also referred to as renal transplant. The procedure involves the surgical replacement of the diseased or non-functional kidneys of a patient with a healthy one taken from a suitable donor. Kidney transplant is usually recommended when the patient does not show considerable improvement with medication and dialysis.

 

Pancreas transplant: Pancreas transplant is a surgical procedure in which the diseased pancreas of a person is replaced with healthy ones taken from a deceased donor. The procedure is usually performed to treat Type 1 diabetes. The procedure may also be performed along with a kidney transplant to alleviate serious complications triggered by diabetes.

 

Small intestine transplant: Small intestine transplant or small bowel transplant is an invasive procedure which involves the replacement of the diseased or non-functional portion of the small intestine with a healthy portion taken from a suitable donor. The procedure is usually performed to save the life of patients suffering from irreversible intestinal failure.
