About the Department

Heart transplant services in our institute was initiated in the year 2000.To date, we have successfully performed 10 cardiac transplants with recipients hailing from across the country. At present, our wait listed recipients include patients from across the globe. Last year we had performed three heart transplants on consecutive days- a unique feat, which we believe was made possible by our utmost dedication. Our team is headed by Prof. T. Periyasamy, MS , MCh , FPCS., assisted by a team of dedicated Cardiothoracic Surgeons , Cardiologists, Cardiac Anesthetists, Pulmonologist and Nephrologist . In 2016, Prof T. Periyasamy was facilitated by the honourable Chief Minister of Kerala in the 4th Annual Society for Heart Failure and Transplantation .
Our transplant center was created with the aim of providing patients with the best transplant facilities possible .The transplant team is committed to actively working with our patients through every step of the transplant process. Apart from heart transplant, the team also offers ECMO facilities. The team takes pride in having performed the first successful neonatal ECMO on a two day old neonate in the country
