Paras Hospital to Begin Kidney Transplant within Two Months

Typography

Patna: Paras HMRI Hospital in Patna will have a kidney transplant facility in the next two months while also adding liver transplant service available within a year, hospital officials said on Wednesday.

Dr. Ajay Kumar, who recently joined the hospital as its Director for Urology, Nephrology, and Transplant Department, speaking at a press conference, said that the hospital would start offering liver transplant within a couple of months while liver transplant will become available in a year.

He further advised people to drink adequate amount of water saying by doing so, they could rid chances of developing urological disease to a great degree.

Lamenting the lack of adequate healthcare facility, Dr. Kumar said that Bihar had only 25 surgeons to deal with nearly 11 crore people in the state.

"We need more surgeons in Bihar who could treat people with serious kidney or liver ailments. It is no wonder patients from Bihar have to go to other states to get proper treatment," he said.

Hospital Director Dr. S S Chatterjee said that open heart surgery had recently begun at the Indira Gandhi Institute of Cardiology (IGIC) where the first surgery was performed successfully on a young man that involved valve replacement.

The government provides subsidies to heart patients if one's income is less than Rs. 1 lakh per annum, Dr. Chatterjee said.
