Leading in Organ Transplantation - Fortis Hospitals, Mumbai
Organ transplantation is a medical procedure in which an organ is removed from one body and placed in the body of a recipient to replace a damaged or missing organ. The donor and recipient may be at the same location or organs may be transported from a donor site to another location. Organs and/or tissues may be transplanted within the same person's body (autografts) or performed between two subjects of the same species (allografts) which can either be from a living or cadaveric source. Transplantation of various organs, tissues and cells such as kidneys, hearts, lungs, livers, bone marrow etc. are now possible even in children. With the number of people needing transplants increasing each year, various organizations and healthcare providers are increasing public awareness regarding the need for organ donation. Medical technology is continuously improving making the procedure life-saving for people with complex ailments and research studies are focussing on development of new anti-rejection drugs and therapies that are less toxic and more effective.
