Today, The Team advances new surgery techniques, develops better anti-rejection medication protocols and provides the absolute best care for heart transplant patients.

The first stage of any transplant procedure is to evaluate the patient for suitability and necessity for a heart transplant. The evaluation will also include a discussion with the patient wherein he/she will be briefed on the procedure & post-transplant care.
A patient expected to undergo a heart transplant will be put through several screening investigations such as x-rays, angiogram & blood tests. Dental & physical evaluation will also be conducted in addition to a mental assessment of the patient.
Once a patient is identified for transplant, he/she is added to the National Organ & Tissue Transplant Organization list. Although, the wait time is not fixed; patient must be physically & financially ready to undergo transplant as soon as a donor is available.
As soon as the donor is available, the surgical phase kicks in. The organ is harvested & the recipient is prepared for surgery simultaneously. The surgery can last around 6-8 hours. Post-surgery a tailor-made rehabilitation plan is prescribed for the patient.
