Factors that affect Organ Transplant Cost in India

  • Surgeon's Fees

    An important expense when it comes to your organ transplant is going to be your surgeon's fees. IndiCure recommends experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful surgeries. The charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, popularity, and the approach to treatment.

  • Type of Surgical Approach

    A significant portion of the overall cost of the surgery arises from the use of any customized surgical instruments or specialized computer technology. With the hopes of improving patient care, new techniques and technologies are often introduced to the surgical process. Such innovative advancements in the surgical approach can increase costs.

  • Surgical Facility

    Having your organ transplant in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be affordable.

  • Surgery-Related Expenses

    The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the candidacy and the medical history of the patient. This also includes the routine medical exams and tests to ensure you're a good fit for the surgery. Post-surgical expenses may include prescription medications and follow-up consultations.

We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is all-inclusive and affordable at the same time.

Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

Organ Transplant in India

Organ Transplantation Laws in India

Organ Transplant or Organ donation in India is strictly regulated by the Govt of India. The laws governing Organ donation or Organ transplant are very strict and prohibit any commercial transaction between the donor and the recipient of any organ. Only close or blood relatives (brother, sister, mother, father, children or spouse) can donate an organ to the patient.

A special permission from the Govt. has to be taken if an unrelated person wants to opt for organ donation. If the proposed donor or the recipient or both are foreigners and are seeking organ transplant operation in India, a senior Embassy official of the country of origin or the government of the country concerned (authenticated by the Embassy concerned in India) has to certify the relationship between the donor and the recipient.

Organ Transplantation Cost in India

The success rate after kidney or liver transplant in India is as good as the best hospitals in the world for liver transplant or kidney transplant. The cost of heart, pancreas, liver or kidney transplant in India is a fraction of what it costs to get an organ transplant in the West. For example, the Kidney transplant cost in India is around US $ 15,000 whereas the cost of kidney transplant in the US costs around $200,000.

Affordable cost and quality of services is what is driving more and more people to get organ transplants in India- the process popularly known as transplant tourism.

Our association with carefully chosen hospitals and surgeons for kidney, liver, bone marrow, pancreas, gall bladder and bone marrow transplants allow us to offer organ transplant to you at affordable prices.

What is Organ Transplant ?

Organ Transplantation is the process of removal of the healthy, live and well-functioning organ from the body and transferring or replacing the diseased or abnormal organ with it in the same or different body.

In simpler words, Organ transplant refers to the replacement of the non-functioning organ with the healthy and living organ from the donor which can be a living or dead person or a cadaver.

Organ donors can be alive or those who died recently due to brain or circulatory death. The majority of deceased donors are those who are declared brain dead. The term "brain dead" refers to the loss of brain function, which usually occurs after a traumatic or pathological brain damage, or when blood circulation to the brain is cut off.

Organ transplantation is a serious surgery with possible hazards, which patients seeking a transplant should be aware of. The possibility of organ rejection is the main reason why organ transplantation is dangerous. Before deciding on an organ transplant, it is critical that you obtain all relevant information and discuss with your doctor.

Patient Testimonials

It is my pleasure to write for IndiCure, since I owe my life to you people. The kind of facilities available here in India are no less than what are available in Western countries. I was told that I should go to the USA for my Bone Marrow Transplant, but the cost there was so very high that I could not afford to get the treatment done there. But only IndiCure made it possible for me to be treated here. They convinced me of the facilities and Dr Bhargava's expertise and actually delivered what they promised.

I would highly recommend IndiCure and India to anybody looking for medical treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What documentation would I need for undergoing my organ transplant in India?

You would need to take a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from your embassy before you proceed with your transplant surgery. You would also need to prove your relationship with the donor and produce quite a few documents before the transplant committee.

Please contact us at info@indicure.com for complete guidance on your transplant surgery in India.

2. Can I find a donor for organ transplant in India?

No, for kidney and liver transplant, you will have to bring a donor with you who is a close relative of patient. The laws in India do not allow the sale or purchase of any organ.

3. How long before the surgery do I need to come for my organ transplant surgery in India?

It is advisable that you come 2-3 weeks before your surgery in India. You and the donor would need to undergo a battery of investigations, besides the paperwork that needs to be completed before the surgery.

According to the Human Transplant Act of India, patients must have a blood group compatible donor from their family (donors must be between the ages of 18 and 65). Only once the permission committee has approved the donor may transplantation take place.

Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before.

  • Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.
