Organ transplantation gives new life to the individual with damaged or failed organ. The most common organ transplant includes kidney, heart, liver, pancreas, lung, and intestine. Double organ transplantation is also possible such as kidney and pancreas transplant, and heart and lungs transplant. A Kidney transplant is the most common type of organ transplant whereas intestine transplant is the least common type of the organ transplant.
