Sometimes, kidney may lose its ability to function properly and in some extreme cases may cease to work altogether; this condition is known as kidney failure. In such extreme cases, kidney transplant is considered to be the most viable option. At Fortis, we have an eminent team of Kidney Transplant Specialists, Nephrologists, Urologists and the technical expertise needed to meet the challenges of this life saving procedure. We offer the most advanced diagnostics, comprehensive pre-operative evaluation and dialysis support, the latest facilities in surgical procedures, and complete post-operative care including an isolation room to minimise chances of infection.
- ABO Incompatible Transplants (unmatched blood groups transplants)
- Minimally invasive (Laparoscopic) donor surgery
- Specialised paediatric transplant programme
- Specialised post-transplant procedures like graft kidney biopsies
- Complete post-transplant care
After a successful kidney transplant, your new kidney will filter your blood, so you will no longer need dialysis.
Our heart transplant program is backed by state-of-the-art technology, cutting-edge medical interventions and wisdom of more than two decades of cardiac care experience. We have performed many path breaking heart transplant surgeries.
A heart transplant is an operation in which a failing, diseased heart is replaced with a healthier, donor heart. Heart transplant is a treatment that’s usually reserved for people who have tried medications or other surgeries, but their conditions haven’t improved sufficiently.
While a heart transplant is a major operation, your chance of survival is good, with appropriate follow-up care.When faced with a decision about having a heart transplant, know what to expect of the heart transplant process, the surgery itself, potential risks and follow-up care.
Talk to your doctor if you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Transplant centers often have support groups and other resources to help you manage your condition. Most people who receive a heart transplant enjoy a high quality of life. They can return to work within three to six months of a heart transplant and have few activity restrictions.
At Fortis, Liver Transplants are performed by country’s most experienced and patient friendly team of experts who have excellent records in terms of patient care and outcomes. The multidisciplinary team comprises of Surgeons, Transplant Hepatologists, Gastroenterologists, Anesthesia and critical care Intensivists, Interventional Radiologists and well trained technical and nursing staff. We also run evaluation centres for liver donors and patients at various Fortis hospitals
A liver transplant is a surgical procedure to remove a diseased liver and replace it with a healthy liver from a donor. Most liver transplant operations use livers from deceased donors, though a liver may also come from a living donor.
The number of people waiting for new livers is much larger than the number of available livers, so liver transplant is reserved for people who are critically ill. Some people receive a liver transplant right away, while others spend many months waiting for a liver transplant.
Expect six months to a year of recovery before you’ll feel fully healed after your liver transplant surgery. You may be able to resume normal activities or go back to work a few months after surgery. How long it takes you to recover may depend on how ill you were before your liver transplant.
A lung transplant is a surgical procedure to replace a diseased or failing lung with a healthy lung, usually from a deceased donor. Depending on your medical condition, a lung transplant may involve replacing one of your lungs or both of them. In some situations, the lungs may be transplanted along with a donor heart.
A lung transplant can substantially improve your quality of life. The first year after the transplant — when surgical complications, rejection and infection pose the greatest threats — is the most critical period.
A pancreas transplant is a surgical procedure to place a healthy pancreas from a deceased donor into a person whose pancreas no longer functions properly. Almost all pancreas transplants are done to treat type 1 diabetes.
Your pancreas is an organ that lies behind the lower part of your stomach. One of its main functions is to make insulin, a hormone that regulates the absorption of sugar (glucose) into your cells. Type 1 diabetes results when your pancreas can’t make enough insulin, causing your blood sugar to rise to dangerous levels.
The side effects of a pancreas transplant can be significant, so a pancreas transplant is typically reserved for those who have serious diabetes complications. A pancreas transplant is often done in conjunction with a kidney transplant.
After a successful pancreas transplant, your new pancreas will make the insulin your body needs, so you’ll no longer need insulin therapy to treat diabetes. But even with the best possible match between you and the donor, your immune system will try to reject your new pancreas.
To avoid rejection, you’ll need medications to suppress your immune system. You’ll likely take these or similar drugs for the rest of your life. Because medications to suppress your immune system make your body more vulnerable to infection, your doctor may also prescribe antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal medications.
