Organ transplantation is a major breakthrough in the history of medical science whereby one can donate a healthy organ (from donor’s site) to replace a diseased or failing organ (on recipient site).

Liver Transplant- How is it done



What is Liver Transplantation and who may require it?

Liver transplantation or liver transplant is a surgical method of removing a diseased liver and replacing it with a healthy liver from a donor. The donor may be living or deceased.
In adults, cirrhosis is the main reason for a failing liver for which liver transplant is required. It can be caused by different types of diseases that cause destruction of healthy liver cells and replace them with scar tissue. 

Some of the causes of failing liver can be - over intake of alcohol, long term infection with hepatitis C or hepatitis B virus, building up of fat in liver, auto-immune liver diseases and hereditary disease. In children, biliary atresia is the most common cause for needing a liver transplant. In biliary atresia, the bile ducts are missing or damaged or blocked due to which bile backs up in the liver and causes cirrhosis. Other reasons that lead to requiring a liver transplant include acute liver failure, liver cancers etc.

Laws and Regulations for Liver Transplant in India

Laws for organ transplant in India are very strict and allow only blood relatives to donate liver to the patient. As per the law, there should be absolutely no commercial transaction between donor and recipient for the liver transplant. In case where an unrelated donor wants to donate liver to a patient, special permission is to be taken from the govt. If both the recipient and donor are foreigners and want to get liver transplantation in India, a senior Embassy official of the country of origin or Govt. of the country concerned has to certify the relationship between the recipient and the donor.

Investigations required before transplant

To make sure that the new liver is accepted by the body and the liver transplant is successful, a few tests are done on both the donor and the recipient. To check compatibility, various tests and investigations are done such as – Echo, EKG, CT Cholangiogram, Abdominal CT scan, physical assessment by a physician, hepatologist and a psychologist.

Why liver transplant in India? After all there are so many regulations!

Come to the best joint replacement surgeons of the world in India

Joint replacements?

While the whole world seems to be concerned about fat and good looks, very few talk about the health issues concerning bones and joints. Most of us have heard no further of joints than what was taught to us in high school biology classes. God forbid, but it is when diseases like arthritis deplete the well-being of our joints that the significance of joints come to the fore. 

Bones are living tissues that give structure and form to our human bodies. They are maintained and protected by an intricate natural system through which blood helps them stay healthy, grow and repair themselves. The intersection of two bones forms a joint. If, due to diseases or damage caused by injuries in joints, blood flow to the bone tissues gets restricted, you might suffer a considerable decline in the quality of life. Joint replacement surgery can gift you back the freedom and joys of being able to move without restrictions, without pain, without precaution.

Joint replacement surgery is not your first aid to joint aches! 

Do not jump into the conclusion that we are advocating you to get your joint replacements surgery dates fixed the next time your joints begin to ache. Joint replacements surgery shares the same fate as almost all other surgeries. It is used as the final mode of treatment only after other less invasive procedures like medication, exercise, physical therapy, vitamin and mineral supplementation and even walking aids are employed and have failed to produce satisfactory improvement. Our advice - stick to your doctor’s advice as far as joint replacement surgery is concerned. 


What are the new joints like? 

As you would have guessed by its name, joint replacement surgery involves replacing a damaged joint in the patient’s body by a plastic or metal made joint called prosthesis. Whether prosthesis will be cemented or not depends mostly on the client’s age and level of activity.

Types of Joints
While cementing is recommended for those whose bones are weak due to old age or heredity, uncemented joints are suitable for those with good quality bones and who lead more physical active lives. Uncemented joints take longer to heal though, as the patient’s natural bones are required to grow into and attach themselves with the prosthesis. Here also, our advice - stick to your orthopedic surgeon's advice about the choice of suitable joints for you.

Welcome to India, the land of best hospitals for spine surgery

Spine surgery in India

Spine surgery in India
Welcome to the land of best hospitals for spine surgery
Welcome to India, the land of best hospitals for spine surgery treatment! Having made a significant mark in treating even the most complex spinal disorders, India now boasts of offering spinal surgery treatment at some of its best spine surgery centers. The best hospitals in India, offering treatment for various spinal conditions are not only internationally accredited, but are equipped with latest technology, sophisticated instruments and have world class amenities which are at par with the hospitals in any other developed nation. Owing to the low cost of spinal treatment available at these state of the art hospitals, getting treatment in India for spinal disorders comes as a complete treatment package.

Types of Back surgeries available in India

Spinal fusionIt is the most common surgery done for the treatment of back pain. The procedure entails joining of spinal bones called vertebrae together. Fusion of bones ensures restriction of motion between bones of the spine and limits stretching of nerves.

Laminectomy In laminectomy, a part of bone, bone spurs or ligaments in the back are removed so as to relieve pressure on spinal nerves which may be causing pain or weakness.

Foraminotomy It is a procedure in which the bone at the sides of vertebrae are cut away so as to widen the space where nerve roots exit the spine. This helps in relieving pressure on the nerves thereby relieving neural pain.

Interlaminal Implant It is an alternative to spinal fusion wherein a “U” shaped devise is inserted between two back bones to help maintain space between them. It may be done at the same time as laminectomy. The procedure is also helpful in relieving symptoms of spinal stenosis.

Discectomy In a discectomy, a part or whole of disc is removed which may be bulging out and pressing on a spinal nerve and causing back pain. It can be done through a larger incision or a smaller one using tools from outside the body. Discectomy can also be a part of larger surgery such as foraminotomy or spinal fusion.

Disc Replacement An artificial disc replacement is a procedure whereby a damaged spinal disc is replaced with an artificial disc. It permits continued motion of the spine and is an alternative to spinal fusion surgery. With artificial disc replacement, the recovery time is shorter than spinal fusion.
Spinal surgeries may be done to treat various conditions of the spine such as infections, tumors, spinal injuries, spinal conditions such as Ankylosing spondylitis, scoliosis, and bone changes in the spine that come with age such as herniated disc, spinal stenosis etc.
