Noida/ New Delhi: With over 1000 and counting organ transplants under its belt, Jaypee Hospital at Noida is emerging as a centre of excellence in the area. The success rate being 100 percent, the hospital now has the nerve to say it out loud that live organ donation is totally safe.
In a press conference on June 30, the transplant team of the facility made a fervent appeal to people to come forward for live organ donations as cadaver donation is abysmally low in India as out of 747 kidney transplants in the hospital only 9 organs were retrieved from brain dead persons.
In six years’, time, the figure 747 kidney and over 300 liver transplants are quite impressive as two years of Covid pandemic yielded almost nil number. Given the speed and first-rate transplant team, the hospital is all set to create many a milestone. Thanks to its reputation as a centre of excellence in organ transplant it has got foothold in over two dozen countries. In times to come, foreign transplant patients are expected to escalate. On the occasion, donors and their families were honoured for making gifts of life to their near and dear ones.
The transplant team that pulled off such outstanding success included Dr. Amit K. Devra– Director, Coordinator Kidney Transplant Programme, Department of Urology & Kidney Transplant, Dr. Anil Prasad Bhatt– Director, Department of Nephrology & Kidney Transplant, Dr. K R Vasudevan-Director, Department of Liver Transplant,Dr. Vijay Kumar Sinha– Additional Director, and Department of Nephrology & Kidney Transplant and Dr. Punit Singla, Additional Director, Department of Liver Transplant & Surgical Gastroenterology.
Speaking on this achievement, Dr Manoj Luthra, CEO, Jaypee Hospital Noida, said “Reaching this milestone is a testament to the legacy of the Shri Jaiprakash Gaur Ji. We are continuing to strengthen our transplant programs by using less-invasive procedures for living-donor liver procurement and by adopting methods that will allow us to use organs previously deemed to be marginal. By doing so, we intend to widen access to this life-saving treatment. We are so proud of our team’s relentless spirit and dedication to seeking innovative solutions for patients and improving their quality of life – not just today, but for years to come.”
With high success rate, Jaypee Hospital is among the best super multi-specialty in the country yielding optimal results with the help of a dedicated team of nephrologists and liver specialists who are having extensive experience and knowledge. Standing up with an experience of over 1000 transplants, Jaypee hospital has been able to sustain donor morbidity to an extremely low rate with zero percent mortality.
Further adding, Dr. Anil Kumar, COO, Jaypee Hospital said, “Organ donation is the noblest way to living beyond one’s death and gives others a new lease of life. Despite the significant progress made toward encouraging organ donation, the gap between the need for organs and their availability remains a serious problem. Every year thousands of livesis lost due to organ failure. This gap is very unfortunate as organs from an individual can save up to 8 lives. The need of the hour is to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation. But lately, there has been a conscious rise in the rate of organ donation pledges through the coordinated efforts of various stakeholders.”
The event was aimed to felicitate brave souls who had the courage to save someone’s life by donating their own organs and thereby bust the myths related to organ donation. The event saw participation from donor and majorly donor families, who donated their organs to save someone’s life.
