A survey was conducted, during which the state of health at the time of the survey was assessed as good, there is no need for transplantation yet. Recommendations on home, outpatient treatment are given. It is recommended to undergo a second examination after 6 months to assess the dynamics of the state of health.

The patient was treated of bladder cancer

The clinic, in the category "like - do not like", I can not evaluate. Meeting at the airport with an interpreter and transfer to the clinic - standard. Accommodation in the guest house, before the operation, leaves much to be desired. But, who is familiar with India, I do not think for special comfort and does not count, otherwise - to Germany. Immediately the next morning, without delay and delay, a primary appointment with doctors and diagnosis. Prices for a visit from doctors, examinations and tests are very reasonable, commensurate with Moscow or, even lower. Communication with doctors through an interpreter is somewhat difficult, but quite informative and understandable. Knowledge of English will remove all embarrassment, but in general - not critical. The attitude of doctors to the examination and refinement of the diagnosis is "meticulous". After five days - a summary and proposal for a treatment program. Hospitalization, surgery, 3 days in the intensive care unit and postoperative placement in a two-bed room (together with an attendant) for 12 days. And an extract. The level of training, skill and attitude of doctors, from my "ambitious" point of view of the accompanying person, is beyond praise !!! About the surgeon who performed the operation - DR. MURUGANANDHAM K, I want to say that he has "golden hands and heart" !!! The attitude of the average medical personnel, despite the language difficulties, is very friendly. In the intensive care unit was invited immediately after the operation and "woke up" the patient with me. Opening his eyes and seeing his native face after anesthesia - a person "comes alive"! Postoperative treatment and care in the ward are very worthy. Having repeated his own experience in hospitalization, I can not even compare. The account is not in our favor. In fact, treatment in the clinic saved life! This is especially evident now, a year after the treatment. A year ago, options were considered: Germany, Israel and India. In terms of price-quality ratio and recall of acquaintances have chosen treatment in India. And they were not mistaken. The clinic was selected by specialists of the site en.bookimed.com. They also provided a correlation and communication with the clinic. Huge thanks to them !!!

The patient was treated of pterygium

Yes. The services were very good. Personal well motivated to work and ready to help.
Cleaness as I observed

The patient underwent liver transplant

The equipment is good, modern. Doctors and attendants are attentive and highly qualified. I passed a survey course and a number of specialist consultations. At the time when I was there, I was advised not to rush into the operation, as the state of health is at the stage of improvement. If they were interested in pumping money from me, then they would recommend urgently to do it, which indicates their objectivity. The only problem with finding there was an unusual food for me. But this is someone who, like someone who loves spicy, peppery and a lot of seasonings.

The patient was treated of melanoma

I want to thank from the bottom of my heart your company, and in particular a very competent and qualified coordinator-Soyak Alionu for help and advice provided in the process of selecting and treating liver melanoma. Having chosen the country of India and the Global Hospital, we received a consultation and made a diagnosis, thanks to which the oncologist, our doctor, picked up an innovative drug that gave us hope for recovery. We have a diagnosis of grade 4 melanoma of the liver and lung. After returning from India, we undergo further treatment in Ukraine. Believe miracles happen, do not miss your chance, contact Bookimed and they will do their best that you are healthy. RS We are very grateful to Alyona, for helping us in everything from uploading documents to the site and ending with the purchase of tickets for the plane. She worked with us 24 hours a day and if not for her help with our medicine in Ukraine there would be no hope.

Lung transplant: indications and contraindications

Lung transplant is a complex operation that supposes replacing malfunctioning one or both lungs, or their parts with the healthy ones. Surgeons of the world's lung transplant centers take the lung or its part from a living (in this case only the fraction is taken) or a deceased donor.

The procedure is assigned to people with:

  • lung cystic fibrosis — genetic disease that affects certain glands
  • bronchopulmonary dysplasia or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) — lung malfunctions that disrupt normal breathing
  • pulmonary hypertension — a condition that refers to high blood pressure in the lung arteries
  • pulmonary fibrosis — too much scarring tissue in the lungs leads to shortness of breath
  • heart malfunction — some heart conditions cause lung diseases that may lead to heart+lungs transplantation.
Lung replacement is not a suitable treatment for lung cancer.
Lung transplants in the best hospitals in the world

The operation has following contraindications:

  • smoking or drug addiction
  • psychiatric issues that makes a patient legally incompetent
  • an absence of accompaniment for support (it's obligatory)
  • infection or disease that cannot be completely cured
  • cardiac issues
  • metastatic cancer
  • serious life-threatening conditions that will not be treated by transplantation
  • lung transplant centers won’t accept people over 55 years old.

If you are going to undergo the procedure, be ready for constant monitoring in lung transplant hospitals and take immunosuppressants during the whole life.

Donor options in lung transplant centers

There are 3 possible types of donors for the operation:

  1. Deceased donor. In most cases, organs for transplantation come from a deceased person, upon the agreement of donor’s relatives. These donors are called cadaveric. They usually have the heavy cranial trauma. Lung transplant hospitals make sure donor’s vital processes are still functioning, providing enough time for recipients allocation. After that, numerous blood tests are made to match the donor with a recipient.
  2. Donors who died due to cardiac arrest (DCD). The practice of using such donors was established in 2008 by lung transplant centers of excellence. Since that time it has been showing higher survival rate compared to brain-dead donors, in the recipients over a 2-year postoperative period (87% and 69% survival rates respectively).
  3. Living donors, who are willing to donate part of their lung. They are usually related to a patient.

Lung transplant wait time

Doctors apply so-called bridging to a transplantation, keeping a patient alive until a donor appears. This technology nullifies preoperational fatality risks and reduces the lung transplant wait time for patients.

Donation from a living donor also reduces the waiting time. It is available in such cases as:

  • transplant of the whole organ is not possible due to cultural, legal or financial obstructions
  • the lung waiting time is too long for a patient.

During the procedure, surgeons remove a part of the lung from 2 living donors and transplant them to a recipient.

Even the best hospital for lung transplant can’t provide a lung donor faster than within 1 year after applying to a queue. Usually, the lung transplant wait time takes around 4-8 months.

Lung transplant programs

The lung transplant programs usually consists of such steps as:

  1. Pre-waitlist evaluation

It is the 1st step after your arrival to the best hospital for lung transplant. There a medical team carries out an evaluation process. The team consists of a pulmonologist (a doctor who specializes in treating of the lungs), surgeon, social worker, psychiatrist, psychologist, and one or more assisting nurses.

Specialists provide this step to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. After a positive conclusion, you are included into a waiting list. During the lung transplant wait time you should stay in near vicinity of the hospital.

Pay attention! India is the most loyal country in the lung transplant for international patients. The wait time here is the same for both citizens and medical tourists.

Lung transplantat scheme

  1. Lung transplant procedure

The surgery takes 6 -12 hours. The duration depends on some factors: type of operation, doctor’s experience, your health condition. You stay under general anesthesia.

When the surgery is complete, experts insert a special tube in the chest to remove air, drain fluid, and blood from the operation area to let the lungs function.

  1. Postoperative period

Right after the surgery, you have to stay in the intensive care unit (ICU). It is a special department of lung transplant centers for constant monitoring and instant reaction to condition worsening. Duration of stay in the ICU varies.

When your condition is stabilized, you are sent to a specialized care unit within a hospital. You stay under constant observation. During the hospitalization, you are provided with information about medications, diet, activity regimen, and other specific guidelines.

The postoperative hospital stay lasts 7-14 days, but the period may be extended depending on the health condition.

  1. Follow-up care

In 2 weeks you left the lung transplant center and return home. You should follow doctors' recommendations on how to bathe, keep surgical incision area clean and dry. There are certain restrictions: don't drive and perform physical activities for a period specified by a physician.

Follow-up visits in the best hospital for lung transplant include a great range of tests and the rehabilitation program. They may last for months, but usually take no more than 8 weeks.

After the operation, you need to take immunosuppressors for a lifetime to avoid organ rejection.

Survival rate in the best lung transplant centers is up to 85% in the first 3 years after the procedure. The average life expectancy for patients with bilateral lung and heart transplant is over 6 years.

Pricing in lung transplant centers of excellence

Prices for the procedure in the best lung transplant centers depends on:

  • patient's condition
