Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital - Announces their first Kidney Transplant Operation in PCMC area

The first patient who has undergone a successful kidney transplant will be discharged today, Friday 7th September 2007

Pune,  (IndiaPRwire) The Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital (ABMH), a multi-speciality hospital of international standards and giving personalized care has started their transplant program. The first patient who has undergone a successful kidney transplant will be discharged today, Friday 7th September 2007.

To provide this service to the community, ABMH have made an effort not only to start the program but also to do it in a different way.

Arrangements have been made to avoid complications like infections to a bare minimum. Dedicated operating rooms are provided for the surgery and separate rooms equipped with ICU facility and monitoring for the recipients as well as separate AC ducts with ‘HEPA filters’ to avoid infections from other areas.

This facility is available only in this hospital in the city and a few hospitals in the country.

The transplant team has all dedicated and well trained staffs from ‘nursing to professionals’, trained in the country and abroad with vast experience of managing regular as well as complicated issues of transplantation.

Their first transplant recipient is a young man, name Faiz Ahmad, 35 years old, who was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure in Oct 2006 and was started on dialysis at SGPGI, Lucknow. He was referred to Dr.Jaloka (Nephrologist) for further management, whereby he continued his dialysis at our center. When ABMH got the permission of transplant from the government, he was very keen to get the transplant done. Dr.Pankaj Maheshwari(urologist) Dr. Kulkarni, Dr. Rao and his team did the surgery on the 30th August 2007.

The Patient did very well post-operation. Both donor and recipient are healthy after the surgery. At discharge the patient is comfortable and his kidney function is normal.

Kidney failure is a growing health problem across the globe and patients for end-stage kidney failure have to be on dialysis for life long, unless they go for transplantation.

Transplantation is better treatment for kidney failure because it increases the life span as compared to patients on dialysis. It also gives a better quality of life to such patients.

The aim is to provide the best possible medical service and this is a step further forward and an endeavor to give a new life to those in need.
