Apollo Hospitals, Nashik performs its First Live Related Kidney transplant on a 35-year-old patient

Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 28 Feb,2017

The Patient was a thirty-five-year-old man who was struggling to live due to his chronic kidney disease and his Mother came forward and donated the kidney.

Dr Mohan Patel said that kidney donation from living family member is preferable and is as safe as blood donation. He also added that soon they will be starting SWAP kidney transplant (Paired Kidney Exchange), Paediatric transplant and laparoscopic surgeries for the donor.

The transplant was done by the team of consultants involving Nephrologist (Dr Mohan Patel and Dr Prakash Ugale), Transplant surgeons (Dr Kishor Wani, Dr Nandan Vilekar and Dr Pravin Govardhane) and Anaesthesiologists (Dr Chetan and Dr Ketan) along with transplant coordinator Ms Charusheela Jadhav.

Apollo Hospitals, being India’s leader in organ transplant, now has fully functional Kidney transplant unit in Nashik hospital with world class standards at affordable rates. It has all facilities required for the kidney patients like pre-transplant evaluation, 24 x 7 dialysis, post-transplant isolation care, 24 x 7 trained intensivists and nursing staff. It has reduced the financial burden on patients travelling to Mumbai and Pune.
