Kindly tell us the source of inspiration. What led you to venture into the transplant operations and industry?
Making a significant and positive difference in people’s lives serves as the main source of inspiration for MGM Healthcare. We are convinced that medical advances have the potential to transform healthcare and improve the well-being of individuals and communities. Investing in organ transplants fits in perfectly with this vision.
Several important factors prompted us to investigate and invest in the transplant sector. We recognized the enormous need for organ transplantation around the world, as well as the life-changing potential it has for patients suffering from end-stage organ failure. The scarcity of organ donors, combined with growing waiting lists, prompted us to take proactive steps to address this pressing healthcare issue.
Our commitment to making a positive impact, addressing the growing need for organ transplantation, leveraging advancements in medical science, and providing patient-centric care, and the unwavering support of our exceptional team inspired us to begin the organ transplant program at MGM Healthcare.
Please brief us about the need for transplants in healthcare. Why is it considered to be of importance today?
Transplants play an important role in healthcare by providing a new life to people with organ failure or severe organ damage. When traditional medical interventions fail to provide a viable solution, the need for transplants arises. Organ transplants, such as heart, liver, kidney, and lung transplants, are critical for patients suffering from end-stage organ failure because they allow them to regain their health and quality of life. These procedures have the potential to significantly extend and improve the lives of patients who would otherwise face a limited lifespan or rely on ineffective medical devices or treatments.
Medical science and technology advancements have increased the success rates of transplant procedures, making them a viable option for more patients. This has resulted in a greater understanding and acceptance of transplants as a standard treatment option for organ failure. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, liver disease and kidney disease has increased the demand for organ transplants. Organ availability, whether from deceased donors or living donors, has become critical in meeting this demand and saving lives. Transplants have an impact on the entire healthcare system, not just individual patients. Successful transplant outcomes reduce the need for long-term, expensive treatments while also improving overall healthcare outcomes, making it an important treatment option.
