Die Due To Unavailability of organs
Anyone, regardless of age or medical history, can sign up to be a donor.
Organ transplants are broadly classified into two types - Living donor organ transplant and deceased donor organ transplant. In the case of the former, the organ is taken from a living donor. This is not possible for all kinds of transplants and is suitable only when the recipient needs one kidney, a lobe of the liver or a portion of pancreas. In the case of a deceased donor transplant, the organ is taken from a donor who has been declared brain dead.
For organ donation after death, a medical assessment will be done to determine what organs can be donated. Certain conditions, such as having HIV, actively spreading cancer, or severe infection would exclude organ donation. Having a serious condition like cancer, HIV, diabetes, kidney disease, or heart disease can prevent you from donating as a living donor.
In the majority of cases, immunosuppressants are to be taken lifelong, so as to negate the risks of organ rejection. Your doctor can decide the same post thorough assessment and evaluation of your overall health.
Yes, a child can undergo an organ transplant with the consent of his/her parents. We have a dedicated team of paediatric experts who assist our surgeons in carrying out such interventions.
After the transplant, you will be required to stay at the hospital for thorough observation. The time of stay varies from one patient to another, depending upon how fast they are recovering. Even after you are discharged, you will be required to visit the hospital for regular health checks.
