Organ transplantation is the procedure of replacing diseased organs, parts of organs or tissues by healthy organs or tissues. An organ transplant is a surgical operation where a failing or damaged organ in the human body is removed and replaced with a new one. The emerging field of Regenerative medicine is allowing scientists and engineers to create organs to be re-grown from the patient's own cells. Various different types of organ can be transplanted and it will prove a survival tonic for patient life. The transplant services team coordinates and work in a proper direction for successful transplantation. There is a lack of awareness among people with regards to deceased organ donation, the concept of brain death and the process of organ transplantation. Strong need for developing a centralized organ-sharing network among hospitals for better coordination, timely utilization and avoiding organ wastage.
