Must read

Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) has completed 50 successful kidney transplant surgeries in the past four months under the Aarogyasri scheme.

The government provides free treatment worth Rs 15 lakh per patient through this scheme.

 Health Minister T Harish Rao congratulated the NIMS doctors who performed the kidney transplant surgeries, calling it a feat that is rare even in corporate hospitals. He praised the leadership of CM KCR for making expensive medical treatment available to the poor. Telangana is currently leading the country in organ donations, and the government is encouraging more organ donations to provide a better quality of life to those waiting to enroll in the Jeevan Dhan programme.

 Since the formation of Telangana state in 2014, NIMS Hospital has performed a total of 862 kidney transplant operations, averaging 100 operations per year since 2015. Last year, the hospital performed 93 kidney transplant surgeries. The recent success of completing 50 kidney transplant surgeries in just four months is a testament to the dedication and expertise of the NIMS Urology Team.

 The Arogyasree scheme is providing free heart, liver, lung, kidney, pancreas, skin, cornea, bone tissue, heart valve and blood vessel transplant surgeries, making expensive medical treatment accessible to the poor.

 The NIMS Urology Team led by Dr  Rahul Devaraj, Professor and HOD, along with Dr CH Ram Reddy, Professor, Dr S Vidya Sagar, Dr G Ramachandraiah, Dr GV Charan Kumar, Dr Dheeraj, Dr Arunkumar, Dr Sunil, Dr Vinay, Dr Vishnu, Dr Janaki, Dr Pawan, Dr Harsha,  Dr Pooverson, Dr Suraj, Dr Sharukh, Dr Aanth, and the anesthesia team of Dr Nirmala, Indira, Kiran, and Shibani, as well as the Nephrology team of Dr T Gangadhar, Dr Sribhushan Raju, and Dr G Swarnalatha, were instrumental in achieving this milestone.

 Gandhi Hospital is currently setting up an organ transplant centre with Rs 35 crore, and the services will be expanded once it is operational. The government aims to continue making advanced medical treatment accessible to all, regardless of their financial situation.
