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 generous act, and donating organ is saving one life ! However in India there is lot of stigma attached to it, and kidney rackets were the reason. When for a patient with kidney failure has alternatives available, the patient with Heart or Liver Failure don’t have hopes other than immediate transplants. 

With all of above still very interesting developments are taking place in Indian medical field of Organ Transplant, in July 1994, The Government of India passed a legislation called.  The Transplantation of Human Organ Act (THO Act of 1994).This was to streamline the process of Organ donation to make it legal & reliable both for the donor & receiver. Now Hospitals are regularly doing transplants and some of the Major names like Apollo, Fortis, Hiranandani, Jaslok are doing great work with the same.
