Our network of hospitals has a track record of providing Orthopaedics and Joint replacement surgery professional expertise of the highest levels and patient care with the intent of early mobilizat
1. Kidney Transplant
It is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the person's own body to replace the recipient's damaged or absent organ. It is often the only treatment for end state organ failure such as liver, kidney and heart failure. Although end stage renal disease patients can be treated though other renal replacement therapies, kidney transplantation is generally accepted as the best treatment both for quality of life and cost effectiveness. In fact Kidney transplantation is by far the most frequently carried out transplantation globally.
Kidney transplant package includes screening for donor and recipient. Blood tests are performed to help determine a good match followed by HLA (Human Leukocyte Antigen) cross match, other essential and imaging tests. For surgery, hospital stay (in-patient) is 5 days for donor and 8 days for recipient. The surgery lasts for 5-6 hours and immediately after the surgery, both the donor and recipient are closely monitored for 24 hours time period in isolated rooms to prevent any infection. Post discharge - patients are advised to do regular follow up with the doctor and basic tests in form of KFT (Kidney Function Test) and TacEDTA are routinely carried out to monitor the Creatinine level and drug adjustments.
Our network hospitals use most cutting edge advanced technologies to carry out kidney transplant procedure to facilitate complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach and is controlled by a surgeon from a console. The Robotic system is called Da Vinci Xi Robotic System.
2. Liver Transplant
Liver transplantation is surgery to remove a diseased or injured liver and replace it with a healthy whole liver or a segment of a liver from another person, called a donor. A successful liver transplant is a life-saving treatment for people with liver failure, a condition in which the liver no longer works as it should.
Who needs a liver transplant?
People with either acute or chronic liver failure may need a liver transplant to survive.
- Acute liver failure (ALF) happens suddenly. Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is the leading cause of ALF across people.
- Chronic liver failure, also called end-stage liver disease, progresses over months, years, or decades. Most often, chronic liver failure is the result of cirrhosis, a condition in which scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue until the liver cannot function adequately.
What are the signs and symptoms of liver failure?
- Jaundice, a condition that causes yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes
- Fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, nausea, weight loss, bleeding in the stomach, vomiting blood, passing black stools, ascites, the buildup of fluid in the abdomen as major.
What is the process for getting a liver transplant?
The process for getting a liver transplant begins with a referral by a doctor to a transplant center. People seeking a liver transplant are carefully evaluated by a team at the transplant center to determine whether they are suitable candidates for transplantation. The evaluation includes a complete medical history, physical examination, blood and urine tests, x rays and other imaging tests, and tests to check the function of the heart, lungs, and kidneys. The transplant team usually includes liver transplant surgeons; liver specialists, called hepatologists; nurses; transplant coordinators care staff.
3. Left Ventricular Assist Device aka LVAD
The left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is a mechanical pump that is implanted inside a person's chest to help a weakened heart ventricle pump blood throughout the body.
Unlike a total artificial heart, the LVAD doesn't replace the heart. It just helps it do its job. This can mean the difference between life and death for a person whose heart needs a rest after open-heart surgery or for some patients waiting for a heart transplant.
LVADs may also be used as destination therapy, which is an alternative to transplant. Destination therapy is used for long-term support in some terminally ill patients whose condition makes them ineligible for heart transplantation.
An LVAD restores blood flow to a person whose heart has been weakened by heart disease. This helps relieve some symptoms such as being constantly tired or short of breath. And sometimes it lets the heart recover normal function by giving it a chance to rest (although this is rare). It maintains or improves other organ functions, improves exercise performance, and enables participation in cardiac rehabilitation.
What Are the Risks of Getting an LVAD?
As with any surgery, there are risks involved. Your surgeon will discuss the risks of the procedure with you.
After surgery, there are other risks, including:
Infection, Intrenal bleeding, Heart Failure, Devie failure, Blood clots, Stroke, Respiratory and Kidney faiture.
