Welcome to the KIMS Heart and Lung Transplant Institute. This is the best place for heart transplant surgery in India. Our team has developed the pioneering basis for solid thoracic organ transplants in India. More than 1,00,000 heart transplants have been performed worldwide to date. Many of these patients have now survived more than 25 years.
Our team led by Dr. Sandeep Attawar has developed many innovations that are now standard practice. Today, the team advances new surgery techniques, develops better anti-rejection medication protocols, and provides the best care for heart transplant patients.
On average, we perform 75 heart and lung transplants each year. Our patients are adolescents and adults, and present various types of end-stage heart disease. We stay in touch with patients throughout their lives. We continue to offer support and education as well as medical assistance related to the transplant well after the successful procedure and return home.
This manual is a resource about the transplant process. You will need to refer to it at various points of the entire process. It is important that you, your caregiver, and your family clearly understand the process which begins with the initial evaluation and continues long after the discharge from the hospital. You play an active role in the transplant process. So, don’t hesitate to ask any questions. You, your caregiver, and your family will work along with our transplant team as a single unit. Our goal is to provide you and your family with all of the information and support you need.
