Liver

Hepatic transplantation, better known as liver transplantation is replacing a diseased liver with healthy liver. It is usually recommend when there is acute liver failure or when the liver is damaged by last stage cancer. Liver transplantation usually takes about 4-18 hours. Every recipient and donated liver is screened carefully for better outcomes.

Intestine

This transplantation is done when there is acute or chronic intestinal failure. Intestinal failure is mostly treated by PN or parenteral nutrition but there can be complications, making transplantation the viable option. Intestinal transplantation is becoming more common due to advances in surgical techniques, immunosuppressive regiments and clinical management of patients, both before and after surgery.

Pancreas

The pancreas is the organ which produces insulin, and healthy pancreas is transplanted into a person who has diabetes. The recipient’s pancreas is left in its position, and donated pancreas is transplanted in another location, and sourced from donor who is living or just died. Pancreas transplantation can be partial or total.

Lung

Lung transplantation is also known as pulmonary transplantation. Lung transplantation can be partial or total. Donor lungs are sourced from deceased or living donor. Living donors can donate only one lung lobe and in some diseases, the recipient requires one lung only. Lung transplantation enhances quality of life and elongates life.
