Re: Kidney transplant
Personally I would never go there. I know that some people do, but it is not a good idea. A colleague of one of my doctors is from India and was assured by a doctor that he knows there that they had found a kidney for him. This man is a well respected doctor here in Canada. He thought that it was a friend of a friend who wanted to donate. He took one look at the potential donor and had a nice holiday instead. The man (the donor) hadn't even been tested for HIV!!
There are a lot of horror stories out there. I am sure that many of them are just urban legend, but I would not get a kidney transplant done in anther country unless I knew the donor personally and had family living there to take care of me.
