A 25-year-old woman, diagnosed with kidney ailment has received a new lease of life after her father-in-law donated one of his kidneys to her. The surgery was performed at Medicover Hospitals, Aurangabad, on 2nd Feb, 2022.

The woman was diagnosed with kidney failure 6 months back. Her urine output had stopped leading to swelling all over the body and repeated episodes of hemoptysis (blood in sputum). She required dialysis treatment in the intensive care unit (ICU). For her condition, Sachin Soni, a Kidney specialist had advised a kidney transplantation surgery.

In absence of any other donor, the father-in-law of the lady decided to become a kidney donor for his daughter-in-law. The challenges were not less as his blood group (B+) was not compatible with that of the patient (O+). Holding the challenges, the kidney transplant team at the Hospital took up the challenge of performing ABO incompatible kidney transplant in December 2021. But the patient tested Covid + and the surgery was postponed to be finally done on 2nd February.

The doctors have confirmed that now the donor and the recipient are in healthy condition with normal kidney functions.

This surgery was performed by the team comprising Dr. Sachin Soni, Dr. Abhay Mahajan, Dr. Arun Chinchole, Dr. Sunil Palve, Dr. Rahul Ruikar. Dr. Dinesh Lahire, Dr. Sunil Murkey and Dr. Abhijit Kabade. Transplant co-ordinator Mr. Sandip Chavan facilitated the legal formalities.

Medicover extends best wishes and prayers for the health and wellness of both.
