Centre For Organ Transplantation

Organ and tissue transplantation is a complex surgical procedure in the field of medicine in which a tissue or an organ is transferred from one person (donor) to another (recipient) to replace a damaged or missing organ. The organ can also be removed and transferred from one area of a person to another area. Transplantation is necessary because the recipient’s organ has failed or has been damaged by disease or injury and is often the only choice left as a life-saving procedure.
