The clinical team for Heart and Lung transplant at Kauvery Hospital, Chennai, includes highly qualified surgeons and supporting physicians who are exceptionally skilled and trained as per international standards. They are also equipped with the latest advancements in performing Heart and Lung Transplant.

According to a report of The Print,  speaking about the association with Aster Medcity, Dr Aravindan Selvaraj, Co-founder and Executive Director Kauvery Hospital Chennai said, “Organ transplants have been gaining momentum gradually in India, yet Heart and Lung Transplants are still lagging behind.
