AIIMS Rishikesh performs its first successful kidney transplant


The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Rishikesh has successfully performed its first kidney transplant. A 27-year-old patient received a kidney from his father during an operation, which lasted for five hours. The AIIMS Rishikesh team, led by Dr. Ankur Gupta, performed the transplant, which marks a milestone in the hospital’s history.

Kidney transplants are complex surgical procedures that require specialized medical expertise, and the success of this operation is a testament to the AIIMS Rishikesh team’s skill and dedication. The hospital has state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to carry out such operations, and the success of this transplant is a reflection of the high standards of care that the hospital provides.

The patient had been on dialysis for the past two years and was in need of a kidney transplant. After undergoing various tests and evaluations, his father was found to be a suitable donor. The transplant was carried out using laparoscopic surgery, a minimally invasive technique that reduces recovery time and minimizes scarring.

The successful kidney transplant at AIIMS Rishikesh is good news for patients in the region who require such specialized medical care. It is also a testament to the advances being made in medical science in India, and the dedication of medical professionals who work tirelessly to improve the health and well-being of their patients.
