Organ Transplantation

DeConsilior works with the most successful organ transplantation teams in Istanbul which, in turn, are made up of eminent and experienced, not only in Turkey but also in the US and Europe, transplant surgeons, pediatric and adult nephrologists, gastroenterologists, anesthesiologists, diagnostic and interventional radiologists, psychologists and social workers, etc.

Organ transplant team's main mission is not only carrying out successful operation in transplanting organ from one patient (donor) to another (recipient), but also ensuring the best possible medical care using the most advanced high technology.

DeConsilior organizes transplant operations of such organs as the lungs, pancreas, intestine, thymus, kidney, liver and bone marrow in patients with available relative donor.
Kidney transplantation

The most widespread diseases that can be indications for kidney transplantation, are the following:

• Existing congenital disorders (aplasia, hypoplasia)
• Cystic kidney disease (polycystic kidney disease)
• Glomerulonephritis (MPGN, RPGN etc.).
• Hereditary disorders (Alport's syndrome, Fabry's disease, etc.).
• Tubulointerstitial nephritis
• Neurogenic bladder
Vascular disease (nephrosclerosis, HUS, TTP, and so on.)
• Stones in the kidneys

In organ transplantation operations, particularly kidney transplantation, correctly coordinated organization is very important. Company DeConsilior assume full this tremendous care. First of all, after your treatment, we will request all necessary medical documents that indicate your need in a kidney transplant. According to the laws of the Turkish Republic, the principal and mandatory requirements for a kidney transplant are two conditions:

1. Compatibility of blood group of the donor and the recipient.
2. The presence of an Apostil certified document that proves relationship between the recipient and the donor.

If patient has relative donor, but they are not suitable by blood group then cross kidney transplantation may take place. This type of transplant provides an exchange of donors with Turkish patients, who were waiting for transplantation.

Once you have decided to undergo surgery and came to Turkey for 3-4 days, the patient and the donor are obliged for preoperative diagnosis. Then, in the shortest possible time operations day is appointed. In kidney transplantation, one of the most important factors determining the success of the operation is the postoperative observation. And at this stage we in the face of DeConsilior will always be next to you: you can always get consultation from your doctor and the operating department of organ transplantation coordinators of DeConsilior.

3. Upon arrival, transplantation experts of the center will conduct a complete diagnosis of the patient to confirm the diagnosis. Depending on the type of transplantation the diagnosis contents may vary:

• On autologous transplantation: specific preparation for collection of patient’s own stem cells. 
• On allogeneic transplantation: search and selection of a compatible donor;

4. Collection of patient’s own bone marrow for subsequent processing and storage.
5. Preparation for the transplantation: A complex of procedures, oppressing and destroying the existing bone marrow - immunosuppressive therapy.
6. Prevention and treatment of complications.
7. A bone marrow transplantation operation.
8. Patient monitoring after surgery, prevention and treatment of late complications.

When doctors decide about a particular patient, they carefully analyze and take into account a lot of factors, such as: the patient's age, state of health, disease progress, previous treatment and reaction to previous treatment.

To carry out such a complicated procedure such as bone marrow transplantation, it is necessary that the patient was on a good health condition. In order to determine that the patient is suitable for transplantation specialists perform complex patient testing procedures. And the results of these tests can predict the likely outcomes of the transplantation procedure.

Bone marrow transplantation can be successful only with a good developed individual operation preparation plan and subsequent follow-up.

Another important condition for successful bone marrow transplantation is the team of specialists. The team includes highly qualified doctors, nurses and support staff. The medical team consists of experienced professionals who are able to quickly and accurately respond to any deviations from the planned course of treatment at any of its stages. This team is able to immediately recognize potential problems and side effects.
