Organ transplants are no longer viewed as a last resort in patient treatments, but rather a curative option earlier in the disease phase. They offer the patient a permanent solution, improve his chances of beating the disease, and give him a good quality of life in the following years. MIOT’s uncompromising standards in choosing the donor organ, as well as its sophisticated facilities for surgery and post surgical care, have made it a leading centre for organ transplants in the country, with success rates on par with the best in the world.
What is Organ transplantation?
An organ transplant involves replacing a patient’s diseased, damaged or failing organ with a healthy one. The healthy organ may be procured from a living donor, or from a brain dead donor, or from a non breathing heart donor – although this happens very rarely.
Organs that can be transplanted are the heart, lungs, liver, intestines, kidneys and pancreas. Tissue, such as the bones, skin, tendons, corneas, heart valves and veins can also be transplanted.
Bone marrow may also be transplanted to treat certain blood-related cancers and diseases. Patients who undergo organ transplants can lead relatively normal lives, provided they take their immunosuppressive medication vigilantly, and are mindful of infections.
