Medical Tourism is Thriving in India

Especially in the country’s healthcare capital, Chennai, where the cost of treatment is sometimes 1/10th of what it runs you in America or the UK, and where scores of specialty hospitals attract an estimated 150 Medical Tourists every day!

Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplantation is done to replace a diseased kidney with a healthy one. A kidney may be damaged due to various reasons like longstanding diabetes or an injury.

Types:

  • Living-donor transplant. Here the kidney from a relative or friend whose kidney matches the recipient is taken. Kidney donation from a 'blood relative' is most successful.
  • Cadaver-donor transplant. Here, kidneys of a deceased person are taken out and transplanted within a given time frame.

    Patients are usually discharged about 7 to 10 days post surgery. Recipients are required to take life-long drugs for immune suppression to avoid kidney rejection by the body. This reduces immunity and patients have to be very cautious about this.
