Cadaver Transplantation at Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital (MPUH) Nadiad (Gujarat, India)

Cadaver Transplantation at MPUH Nadiad

This year, the department of organ transplantation, MPUH has successfully carried out 6 cadaveric (Deceased) organ transplantations. We have retrieved twelve kidneys, twelve eyes and four livers from deceased donors. Out of them ten renal transplantations were done at MPUH and rest of the organs were shared with the Institute of Kidney Diseases & Research Centre (IKDRC), Ahmedabad. Eyes were donated to local Eye Bank.

This has been possible due to increasing awareness among the society. MPUH is actively participating in the mission for deceased organ donations. We have also done 126 kidney transplants from live donors this year alone, taking the total number of live donor transplantation to 2200.
