Abstract: Transplantation of solid organs saves lives of the many organ failure patients who are left with no other option of treatment, but transplantation, to get over their illness. The method of harvesting the organ from a living or dead person and transplanting it to a different living individual is so complex that the donor, the recipient and their families bear experiences that not only require intensive medical management but also psychosocial care. The article presents review of psychosocial problems with patients in need of organ transplantation.
