A local hospital in Nizamabad referred a patient to Global Hospitals Lakdikapul who was suffering from temporary headaches on Saturday. But upon evaluation, it was detected that the patient was brain dead even before any high-end treatment could be administered.
45-year-old Lingampeta Sharada from Peddamallareddy village in Bhiknur mandal, who works as daily wage worker, complained of headache and giddiness before falling unconscious on Friday at her home. On seeing her condition, the family members took her to a nearby hospital but looking at the complexity of the condition, they were asked to take the patient to a facility which could offer better treatment.
“But unfortunately by the time the family brought her to the city she was already brain dead. After duly informing the patient’s family about the condition, her son, Suresh, came forward and agreed to donate his mother’s organs after being counseled by members of Jeevandan and Mohan Foundation,” Dr Hirendranath, VP, Medical Services & Operations, Global Hospitals, said.
“The retrieval of the organs started early Sunday morning. We could retrieve the kidneys, liver, corneas and heart valves,” he added.Dr Balbir Singh, senior liver transplant surgeon at Global Hospitals assisted by Dr Manoj, Dr Venugopal and Dr Dharmesh Kapoor successfully transplanted the liver to a 54-year-old male who is a resident of Delhi at Global Hospitals through a nine-hour surgery.
One kidney was donated to a 31-year-old lady who is a resident of Charminar also at Global Hospitals. Another kidney was donated to a patient in Deccan Hospital, the eyes were sent to LV Prasad Eye Institute and heart valves were sent to Innova Hospital.
