Ashok is a priest and lives in southern India. He had a chronic cardiac ailment that led to an end-state lung disorder. When he reached Apollo Hospitals, the team at the Apollo Institutes of Transplant told him that his best and only real chance was a Heart and Double-Lung transplant. After 8 challenging hours of surgery and a few days to recuperate, Mr. Ashok was back to the pulpit; back to spreading the word of God.

She came to Apollo Hospitals and consulted with a team of experts. A revolutionary simultaneous Kidneys and Pancreas Transplant was recommended, and she agreed.
