Kauvery Hospital Radial Road Successfully Performed First Kidney Transplant

Chennai: Kauvery Hospital, Radial Road, performed its first kidney transplant procedure successfully on 21st February. This marks yet another significant milestone in the hospital’s capabilities to offer life-changing treatments to patients.

The recipient, a 42-year-old lady, was on dialysis for over four years due to end-stage renal failure. She had familial kidney disease and her brother had undergone kidney transplant with their mother as the donor. Since she did not have another donor in the family, she was put on the hospital’s deceased donor waiting list. The patient underwent a kidney transplant procedure last month, thanks to the generous donation of a kidney from a deceased donor at Kauvery Hospital, Radial Road.

The team of acclaimed transplant physicians and surgeons, including Dr Muthu Kumar P, Dr Karthikeyan B, Dr Raja R, Dr Pradeepkumar K and Dr Muthu Veeramani, performed the procedure. Following the surgery, the patient recovered well and her renal function has been effectively restored. After discharge from the hospital, she has regained the strength to perform her daily activities normally and no longer requires dialysis.

Dr Muthu Kumar P, Clinical Lead and Senior Consultant Nephrologist & Transplant Physician, said, “We are happy about the optimistic outcome of our first kidney transplant performed here and grateful for the generosity of the deceased donor’s family. Thanks to the donated kidney, a person has a new lease of life. I would like to appreciate the dedication and expertise of the team of doctors and the support from the nurses and other staff. I wish the patient good health and a long, productive life ahead!”

“Though this was our first kidney transplant here and a risky one considering that the kidney was from a deceased donor, the facilities available at the hospital and the excellent teamwork helped us perform the procedure efficiently and without any complications,” said Dr Raja R, Senior Consultant, Urology.
