- Patients from Bihar will now benefit from the affordable and modern facilities of kidney transplant available at Paras HMRI Hospital
- People of Bihar will no longer need to go out to other metropolitan cities for kidney transplant
- Gujarat’s renowned Dr. Mahesh Desai and Paras’s Director of Urology, Nephrology, and Transplant, Dr. Ajay Kumar carried out kidney transplant of two patients from Patna and Khagadia
Patna, 23rd January 2018: Successful kidney transplant of two patients was carried out at Paras HMRI Super Specialty Hospital, Rajabazaar on Monday, 22nd January 2018. Instead of going by the traditional method of transplant, doctors adopted the laparoscopic method. The surgery was successfully carried out by Dr. Mahesh Desai, Muljhibhai Patel Hospital, Gujarat. His team of medical experts included Dr. Arvind Prakash Ganpule, Dr. Mohan M Rajapurkar, Dr. Dipak Mistri and Dr. Umapati Hegde. While Paras Hospital’s team of surgeons included Dr. Ajay Kumar (Director, Institute of Urology, Nephrology, and Transplant), Dr. Prabhat Ranjan, Dr. Apurva K Chaudhary, Dr. Vikas Kumar, Dr. Shashi Kumar and Dr. Hrishi Kishore.
As part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the patients were nominally charged by Paras HMRI Hospital. While one patient belonged to Patna, the other one was from Khagaria. One of the kidneys was donated by the patient’s wife and the other one by the patient’s father.
During a press conference organized at Paras HMRI Hospital on Tuesday, 23rd January, the hospital Facility Director, Dr. Talat Halim and Director of Urology, Nephrology, and Transplant, Dr. Ajay Kumar called it as a historical event as it paved the way for many more successful kidney transplants in the future. He said, “It is indeed a moment of pride for each one of us at the hospital as it marks the beginning of kidney transplants in Bihar. Patients do not need to travel out of Patna anymore to get such treatments done. This will not just save their time and energy but also their money.” He further added, “Paras is well equipped at providing modern facilities to its patients at affordable rates. Patients will be saved from incurring additional costs of transplantation from now on.”
Dr. Dharminder Nagar, Managing Director, Paras Healthcare congratulated the doctors on carrying out a successful kidney transplant for the first time ever in Paras Patna and called it the result of the doctors’ continuous efforts. He shared an appreciative video with the Paras Patna Team and highlighted that Paras has managed to bring about a much needed positive change in the healthcare sector of Bihar. He particularly extended his best wishes to Dr. Ajay Kumar and his team of medical experts for making the unthinkable possible.
As per the findings of a recent survey, it was found out that 4 lakh patients in India suffer from kidney diseases, while only 1% of these patients afford to get kidney transplants done. The reason is the lack of awareness, proper hospitals, and experienced doctors. Paras HMRI Hospital Patna is best multi super specialty hospital in Patna and aims at providing affordable, accessible, quality healthcare to the common man.
