Gamechangers in MVT- Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre
The Hospital is one of the major bone marrow transplant centres in the country
Mumbai’s Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre offers a range of treatments for kidney related diseases and for kidney failure. Jaslok Hospital has been pioneer in initiating
the ABO incompatible programme in early nineties. To meet this requirement and provide timely treatments, Jaslok Hospital with its latest drug regimen has almost removed the line between ABO compatible and ABO incompatible donor transplant.
The Hospital is one of the major bone marrow transplant centres in the country Jaslok Hospital has been one of the first private hospitals to perform a renal transplantation in India in the year 1974 with the biggest dialysis unit. Since then, the hospital has conducted close to 2,600 renal transplantations. The strength of this transplant programme lies in the team of doctors. The doctors at the hospital have around 43 years of experience in this field of renal transplants.
Dr MM Bahadur, Director –Administration – Nephrology, Jaslok Hospital, said, “End stage kidney disease is not the end but just the beginning of a new life in the form of a successful
transplant. Our first transplant in 1974, 44 years ago, was a young 35-year-old individual and, now is a healthy grandfather at 79 years today.” He is not alone; the hospital has
several patients transplanted 30 years age doing well. A good transplant programme
is what makes the difference. Adding another feather to its cap, experts at Jaslok Hospital have outshined in Bone Marrow Transplant, along with its dedicated approach and
striving towards kidney transplant. Bone Marrow, also known as Stem Cell Transplant, is a life-saving procedure which helps in a varied range of malignant and non malignant life-endangering ailments. Jaslok Hospital has been doing the complex procedure of bone marrow transplant since 2000 and has saved countless lives.

The hospital has now developed into a large department and also probably is one of the major bone marrow transplant centres in the country as of now. The department undertakes a lot of transplants for a number of diseases
which are both malignant and non-malignant. Jaslok Hospital has now become a trusted name in giving patients the right treatment at the right price along with the best facilities. So far, around 400 stem cell transplants have been conducted at Jaslok.

With a goal to match up to the world’s best, Jaslok Hospital has recently re-equipped its liver clinic. This clinic will help to cater exceptional support in early detection of liver ailments which will allow timely medical treatment to prevent life-threatening complications in liver disease. Aiming at providing round-the-clock service to liver
transplant patients, this special clinic will also provide a modern 24×7 laboratory and diagnostic imaging servicesfor undertaking all required tests in-house, without disturbing
the patient. Special attention is given in training and preparing a dedicated team of liver nurses and doctors to perform complex operations with the help of state-of the art, fully equipped operation theatres. Through this Jaslok Hospital hopes to not just create
awareness about the clinic’s success rate but, more importantly, educate people of India about the importance of transplant.
Liver Transplant Surgeon, Dr AS Soin, Director- Liver Transplant from Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre, said, “We at Jaslok Hospital have a facility that is of international
standard, offering both living donor and cadaver donor liver transplantation in adults and children with India’s most experienced liver team.” “Organ transplantation is one of the most miraculous medical breakthroughs of the 20th century. Unfortunately, there are not many organs that are available to help everyone in need. Hence, there is a need for awareness as there are patients waiting for their chance to a better life and this bridge can be only gapped once people willingly come and donate their organs.
Keeping this in mind, Jaslok Hospital has paved its way to become a leading super specialty hospital in Western India where the most complex diseases are treated and advanced surgeries are performed.
