Q: My niece is suferring from kidney failure. Doctors at SGPGI, Lucknow suggested her for transplant but her father and brother have different blood groups. She wants to buy one. Please suggest the best hospital in India and the success rate after transplantation.
A:It is illegal to buy kidneys in India. However if there is another relative who can donate then there is a govt of India committe through which the application for donation has to be routed. In Delhi there are a number of hospitals where this is done. Sir Ganga Ram hospital has done more than 1000 transplants with good results.
