Organ Transplants


Apollo Hospitals performs two types of transplants; living organ transplants and cadaveric organ transplants. Living organ transplants are procedures of removing healthy organs from a donor whose profile matches the patient. The donor can be a blood relative, spouse, or friend. The donor undergoes extensive psychological evaluation and medical evaluation, including if they possess matching blood and body type.

Recipients on the living donor transplant list must be active on the transplant list. Additionally, they must be in optimal health to undergo transplantation for a chance of success for both donor and recipient.

What is cadaveric organ transplant? Cadaveric organ transplants are transplants taken from deceased donors by the consent by the next of kin. The procedure becomes a possibility when the doctor declared the patient brain-dead, even if the donor’s heart remains beating. The donor is transferred to an intensive care unit. Once the donor is deceased, the organ is removed from the body, kept, before it is made available to a patient on the waiting list. Recipients who require immediate transplants will receive the organ first.

During the entire process, the donor’s identity and their cause of death are kept confidential.
