Transplantation is like no other procedure in terms of meticulous planning. Our team carefully completes a series of important steps to ensure that patients are appropriate candidates and are well prepared for transplantation. This care and precision, we believe, is reflected in our higher-than-average survival statistics.
We also believe education is a key component to the preparation process because patients who are better informed tend to deal with post-transplant demands more successfully. Knowledge is empowering and demystifying for both patients and their caregivers. Giving people suffering from heart failure and advance Lung disease a renewed lease on life. At the Heart Failure and Transplant Program at Gleneagles Global Hospitals more patients leave our centre every year with new hearts, lungs and a renewed lease of life. Within our transplant centres, you will find some of the top specialists in the nation in the areas of heart failure, cardiac and lung transplant and mechanical cardiac assist. We performed our successful first heart transplant in 2012. This was preceded by some pioneering work in the field of single lung transplants in adults, suffering from a variety of terminal lung conditions.
This work was without precedent in the sub-continent and we were acknowledged torch bearers in the field. If the current pace continues, we could perform approximately 50 heart, lung and combined Heart-Lung transplants this year. Incidentally, our team is also recognized as a leader in the implementation of ventricular assist devices (VADs) in adults and children.
We are the only team in Asia-Pacific that works on the most advanced 5th generation, remotely monitored LVAD, empowering patients and physicians alike with long term remote monitoring and continued individualized care. Our outcomes following heart transplants and ventricular assist device implants are among the best in the country. At our centre, you will be treated by some of the most experienced physicians in their fields. You will meet one-on-one with our experienced specialists and support staff, who will get to know all your medical needs and you as an individual. By getting to know you and your family well, we can tailor a highly personalized treatment plan and provide the assistance and encouragement you and your family need, both medically and emotionally. In addition to our specialists, our team of nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers and dietitians will provide you with a high level of support and personal attention. We prioritize working closely with your primary care doctor and cardiologist back home to chart the best diagnostic and treatment strategy for you over the long-term, helping you to receive exceptional and continuous care close to your home.
