Fortis Organ Transplants Treatments & Procedures

Kidney Transplant

Kidney, or Renal, Transplant is an operation that places a healthy kidney into the body of a patient whose own kidneys have failed. It is resorted to for patients with end-stage renal disease.Depending on the source of the donor organ, Kidney Transplants are typically classified as

  • deceased-donor (cadaveric) transplants: the donor organ comes from a person who recently died and was not known to have any kidney ailments
  • living-donor transplants
    • genetically related (living-related)transplants:the donor organ comes from a relative, such as a parent, sibling, or child
    • non-related (living-unrelated) transplants:the donor organ comes from an unrelated person, like a friend or spouse

Fortis’ Centres of Excellence for Organ Transplants have a comprehensive Kidney Transplant program with stringent processes in place. Fortis surgeons perform over 300 kidney transplants per year with a high success rate.

Liver Transplant

Liver Transplant is an operation that replaces a diseased or injured liver with a healthy liver or segment of a liver from another person, called a donor. It is a life-saving treatment for those with liver failure, where the largest solid organ in the body is no longer able to function the way it should, affecting the functioning of several other organs. Depending on the source of the donor organ, Liver Transplants are typically classified as

  • Deceased- Donor Liver transplant (DDLT): the donor organ comes from a brain dead but heart beating donor; here the full liver is used
  • Living Donor Liver Transplant (LDLT): the donor organ comes from a living donor; here a half (or hemi) liver is used

Fortis’ Centres of Excellence for Organ Transplants conduct a comprehensive Liver Transplant program, including medically challenging liver transplant surgeries like paediatric liver transplants. Our state-of-the-art planned operation theatres are equipped with CUSA, Argon Beam Coagulator, Tissue link,Ligasure, Intra-operative USG with colour Doppler, patient warmers, rapid fluid Infuser system (level-1), online fluid warmers, multi channel and special monitors for Cardiac output, and SVRTEG machine for intra-operative monitoring of coagulation.

Heart Transplant

Heart Transplant is a major procedure, usually reserved as treatment of last resort in cases of coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease, congenital heart defect or failure of a previous heart transplant.

Fortis Healthcare’s Centres of Excellence for Organ Transplants have the clinical expertise, infrastructural support, and high standards of follow up care required to maximize the chances of a successful heart transplant.

When a donor heart is not available or an option for treatment, Fortis Healthcare’s Centres of Excellence for Organ Transplantshave the expertise to perform a ventricular assist device (VAD) transplant, implanting a miniature pump (VAD) in the chest. VAD implant is increasingly being used as a permanent treatment for heart failure.

Lung Transplant

Lung transplant is an operation that replaces a diseased lung with a healthy one. A donor is usually a person who has died, but in some cases a section of lung can be taken from a living donor.
The procedure could be for

  • A single lung transplant (one damaged lung is replaced): this is often used to treat pulmonary fibrosis but is not suitable for people with cystic fibrosis as infection will spread from the remaining lung to the donated lung
  • A double lung transplant (both lungs are replaced): this is usually the treatment of choice for people with cystic fibrosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), or severe pulmonary hypertension who are undergoing a heart-lung transplant where both the lungs and the heart are replaced with donated organs

Fortis’ Centres of Excellence for Organ Transplants have the skilled teams required to perform this complex and high risk organ transplant procedure, and this is reflected in our high success rates.
