Heart Transplant Surgeon in thane

Dr. Pravin Kulkarni Is a  Heart Transplant Surgeon in Thane. A heart transplant is surgery to remove a diseased heart from a person and replace it with a healthy one from an organ donor. To remove the heart from the donor, two or more healthcare providers must declare the donor brain-dead.

Before you can be put on a waiting list for a heart transplant, a healthcare provider makes the decision that this is the best treatment choice for your heart failure. A healthcare team also makes sure you are otherwise healthy enough to go through the transplant process.

Some causes of heart failure include:  
  • Heart attack (myocardial infarction or MI)
  • Viral infection of the heart muscle
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart valve disease
  • Heart defects present at birth (congenital)
  • Irregular heartbeats ( arrhythmias )
  • High blood pressure in the lungs ( pulmonary hypertension )
  • Alcoholism or drug abuse
  • Chronic lung diseases, such as emphysema or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
