Organ transplantation is the surgical removal of a healthy organ from a donor and placing it onto the body of someone who has organ failure or has undergone trauma.
The effectiveness of organ transplants depends on a number of variables, including the blood type compatibility, size of the organ, length of waiting time, severity of the patient's illness.

About Organ Transplant
If you have an organ that is no longer functioning, you may require an organ transplant (end-stage organ failure). Usually, an organ transplant is thought about after other potential treatments have been exhausted. If medical professionals believe the transplant will save your life, it can be an option. A kidney transplant for someone who has had kidney failure is one example of how a transplant can be utilized to enhance quality of life. Additionally, someone who has had serious burns to a delicate section of skin, like the face, may benefit from a tissue transplant.
Procedure of Organ Transplant
The organ transplant requires a standardized procedure, which involves testing and matching the compatibility of the donor and recipient. For the purpose of determining if you are a candidate for organ transplantation, the transplant team will assess you and look through your medical history.
Guidelines for the majority of organ transplant procedures specify the kind of individual who will benefit from the procedure and be able to handle the trying process.
You will be included on a national waiting list if the transplant team determines that you are an excellent candidate for a transplant. Several variables that depend on the type of transplant you are receiving determine where you will be placed on a waiting list.
