Liver Transplant is regulated at hospitals in India under the Transplantation of Human Organs Acts and Rules. Each hospital has a legally constituted Transplant Authorisation Committee that scrutinises and approves the cases. The patient will have to come with a live, related donor and present the required documents for approval. The Indian Organ Transplant Act does not permit the transplants between unrelated donors, unless approved by the Transplant Committee.
Q. What About The Waiting Period?
A. For a Living Donor Transplant there is now waiting period at all. SafeMedTrip ensures a zero waiting period to all its customers. SafeMedTrip books all the appointments, hospital room etc. in advance for its customers.
Q. How Many Days The Patient and The Donor Need to Stay in India?
The patient has to stay in India for a total of about 3 months including pre-transplant evaluation and preparation, the actual transplant and stabilization in the immediate post transplant follow up period. After transplant, the patient will have to be in hospital for a month and after the discharge from the hospital, the patient has to stay in India for another 5-7 weeks for follow up.
The donor (close relative or family member only) is discharged from hospital after 8-10 days and allowed to go out his/her home country after another 12-15 days of stay in India. After going back to the home country he/she can lead a very normal life as it was before the liver donation.
Q. What about the Stay in India After The Discharge from the Hospital?
A. SafeMedTrip has tie-ups with several hotels, guest houses, service apartments etc located nearby hospitals and we will help you in finding and booking suitable place for the patient and the donor. Usually the room charges may vary from 50-120 US Dollars per night depending upon the type of room and the hotel you choose.
Q. What About Travel?
A. You must have a Passport and will have to apply for Indian Visa at the Indian Embassy in your home country before you can fly to India for the surgery. SafeMedTrip.com will arrange a formal letter from the Hospital/Surgeon which will enable you to get Indian Visa on priority within 7 days of application.
