Transplantation

Organ transplantation is a medical procedure where in an organ/living tissue is removed from one body (donor) and implanted in the body of a recipient in order to replace a missing or damaged organ. There are different types of organ transplants among which kidney transplantation is most common and is perhaps the greatest success among all the procedures, intestines are least common. The only organ that mankind desires to be transplanted but not yet able to do so, is the Brain. The organ transplant person’s life expectancy varies depending on their age, the organ transplanted and the reason for the transplant.  All transplanted organs do not last forever. A kidney from a living donor lasts an average of 12–20 years, whereas a kidney from a deceased donor lasts around 8–12 years.
