What is Transplant surgery
Transplant surgery can be done for many reasons. It can be for complete transplantation of an organ or partial tissue replacement and/or graft placement during a whole different surgery. Organ-specific Transplant surgeries are done when the receiver & organ is completely dysfunctional and has to be removed. The organs are replaced with healthy ones from a donor or in some cases an organ bank or reserve. Transplant surgeries range from minute stem cells transplant to complex heart and vital organs transplants. The liver, heart, lungs, and kidneys are the most commonly transplanted organs whereas bone marrow transplants, cord blood transplants, and peripheral blood stem cell transplants are the most common cell transplants.
