Bone Marrow Transplant & Haemato Oncology

At Artemis Transplant Centre, we are doing cord blood, unrelated donor and Haplo-identical i.e. taking father or mother as donor for transplant so that all the patients who need transplant can have a donor. A cord blood transplant or bone marrow replaces unhealthy blood forming cells with the healthy ones. The blood forming cells as also called as the blood stem cells which are immature cells that can grow into the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

There are two types of transplant – autologous transplants and allogenic transplants.

How Transplant Works?

At Artemis, we have both the adult and paediatric transplant physicians who take care of the transplant patients. You will be referred to a doctor who specialises in the bone marrow transplants who will talk to you about the type of transplant and cell source which is most likely to work best for you based on your disease and other health factors.

Life after Transplant

It can take a year for the new bone marrow to function normally. Most patients have improved their quality of life after transplant.

The three sources of blood forming cells used in transplants are:

  • Bone marrow
  • Peripheral blood also called peripheral blood stem cell or PBSC
  • Umbilical cord blood collected after a baby is born

The bone marrow transplant is the only cure for Aplastic Anaemia, Thalassaemia, Lymphoma, Leukemia or blood cancer and immunodeficiencies.

Liver Transplant & GI Surgery

The surgical replacement of a diseased liver with a healthy liver is known as a liver transplantation. This operation is needed for the end-stage liver disease which is characterized by the patients suffering from reduced liver function, fatigue, muscle loss and encephalopathy, poor blood clotting, signs of portal hypertension and jaundice. A variety of liver diseases can lead to the end-stage liver disease.

There are two main categories: cases causes by viruses (Hepatitis B and C) and/or alcohol and those caused by problems concerning the bile ducts i.e. the primary biliary cirrhosis and primary sclerosing cholangitis. After the operation, the patient starts taking medications to prevent the new liver from being rejected by the body. Complete recovery will take several weeks. Usually, the quality of life for the transplant patients improves dramatically and most of them lead healthy and normal lives.
