Information for Recipients

If you’ve just found out that you need an organ transplant, or you know someone who does, it can be an overwhelming feeling. A lot of questions may be swirling in your mind – What to do, where to go, whom to contact. Do I need a second opinion? Do I need to be on a list somewhere? Do I need to move cities? And a lot more. We have attached a list of hospitals and doctors in Delhi whom you can contact. We have also added a list of NGO’s and other organisations around India who will be able to help you out depending on where you are. If you need further help, feel free to contact us and we will help you to get more information.

In North India there is no centralised list that you can be on. It depends from hospital to hospital. Some hospitals have tie-ups with hospitals from outside Delhi and they may be able to arrange for you to go out of Delhi for a transplant, if there is an organ available. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra are places where a recipient registry is maintained, and since awareness is higher in these states, you are more likely to receive a deceased donation transplant.

This website is a guideline for you and is not a substitute for your doctors or any health institution that is treating you. The information given in here is obtained from protocols followed by various hospitals and not any one medical facility. This is general information and has been done for you to get an idea of what to expect before an organ transplant. As each recipient and case is different, you must follow your doctor’s advice. Apart from this if you need help we will surely attempt to help out where possible.
