Organ transplants in India

Transplantation over the past few decades has gradually become the accepted treatment for a number of conditions where organs like the kidneys, heart and liver have irreversibly failed.

Donation is a generous act, and donating an organ can save someone’s life. However, in India there is lot of stigma attached to it, due to kidney rackets. This is because patients who suffer from kidney failure have alternative treatment options available, whereas patients with heart or liver failure do not, and immediate transplant is their only option.

Organ transplant developments in India

There is legislation in India regarding organ transplants, and health authorities are still trying to develop the process.

In July 1994, the Indian government passed an act named “The Transplantation of Human Organ Act (THO Act)”, which aimed to streamline the process of organ donation, making it legal and reliable for both the donor and the receiver.

In 2017, Indian hospitals are regularly performing transplants and some of the major providers are experiencing great success, including:

  • Apollo Hospital
  • Fortis Hospital
  • Hiranandani Hospital
  • Jaslok Hospital
