TRANSPLANT PROGRAM IN KARNATAKA.
The Heart & Lungs are among the most important organs of the body.When
either of these organs start failing to perform as required,it could cause
irreparable damage to other organs as they depend on these two organs to
function normally.Gleneagle Hospitals brings to Karnataka the experience of
Dr.Thasee pillay,a world renowned cardiothoracic surgeon,and his team of
medical professionals experienced in the field of transplants.Dr.Pillay brings
with him 2 decades of experience in the field of transplants,and has been a part
of over 500 transplants in the UK.His experience & training will be a great asset
to the Heart & Lung transplant scenario in Karnataka.
Addressing media, Dr. Thasee Pillay said," Heart Transplantation is a major,
critical & complex surgery.It should only be considered if the surgery is going to
improve the recipient's chance of survival or quality of life, post transplant".
Recently the hospital treated a patient suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy.After
matching him with a suitable donor,the cardiac transplant team successfully
performed the transplant.
We informally understand that the cost of such transplantation is the cheapest in
India when compared to such transplants in USA & UK.
