Guntur: The Government General Hospital here is gearing up for performing cardiac surgeries, kidney transplants, joint replacements and free heart surgeries for white cardholders very soon. Works are in full swing for the full-fledged launching of its four hi-tech operation theatres in the new building facilities provided by the NRI donors, who were alumni of the Guntur Medical College.

The hospital armed with ultra-modern equipment and the state-of-the-art operation theatres will perform cardiac surgeries from February onwards. Subsequently it will also undertake renal transplantations in the same operation theaters. For the BPL families it will be a game changer as the hospital will be providing corporate medical treatment particularly heart surgeries. Even for other middle class sections, treatment will be subsidised when compared to other corporate hospitals who charge exorbitantly for heart and kidney transplants.

The operation theatres are now being readied by installing new equipments and modern machinery including anesthesia tool, radiologic visualiser user for trauma cases, oxygen medical aid equipped with high resolution heat-free lighting and a video camera for transmitting the happenings in the theater on the screen to be displayed outside for the benefit of the patients. Two theatres will be used for renal transplantation.

The theatres will be used four days for neuro-surgery and two days for other surgeries including kidney transplantations. A committee has been constituted for selection of two cardiovascular perfusionists and 10 cardiothoracic trained nurses. The hospital will be entering into a memorandum of understanding with 'Sahrudhaya Trust' being run by Dr Alla Gopala Krishna Gokhale, who is known to be the first to conduct heart transplantation in the State for running the high profile operation theatres and services.
