Transplant

A transplant surgery involves the removal of healthy tissue or organ from a healthy person and transferring it to an individual whose tissue or organ has failed. The type of surgery performed depends on the organ transplanted. 

The different types of organ transplants include heart transplant, lung transplant, kidney transplant, liver transplant, retina and cornea transplant, combined liver–kidney transplantation, abdominal organs transplant, pancreas transplant, etc. Kidneys are the most commonly transplanted organs.

Organ transplant carries potential risks and disadvantages, like organ rejection. Owing to the advances in anesthetic, immunosuppression, and surgical techniques, most of the renal, liver, and heart transplants function even for one year after the surgery.
