MPUH felicitates deceased organ donor family members

A deceased organ (cadaver) donors’ felicitation programme was held on 6th January 2013 at the JPAC auditorium of Muljibhai Patel Urology Hospital Nadiad. Last year the hospital had performed six deceased organ donor transplantations. Four donors were from the surrounding ICUs and trauma centers whereas the other two donors were from Surat. A total of ten cadaver kidney transplantations have been done at MPUH. Three livers and two kidneys were also shared with IKDRC Ahmedabad.

The hon’ble Collector of Kheda Mr M V Pargi graced the function as the Chief Guest. The programme was attended by more than 150 people associated with our cadaver organ donation campaign. Six deceased organ donor families were invited and felicitated for their noble decision of donating organs of their brain dead children or relatives. Dr Mahesh R Desai, Managing Trustee and Medical Director of the Hospital welcomed the family members and congratulated them for taking very important decision at the time of their grief. Dr R B Sabnis, Chairman, Department of Urology stressed the importance of organ donation in the society as there is a steady increase in the number of patients with CKD (Chronic kidney disease). Dr Shishir Gang, Chairman, Department of Nephrology pointed out various reasons for kidney failure, and the superiority of transplantation over life long dialysis. Dr. Jigish Vyas, Incharge of organ transplantation introduced each family and felicitated the families at the hands of the District Collector. Mr M V Pargi congratulated the transplant team of MPUH for starting the mission of deceased organ donation.
