A team headed by Dr. Puneet Bhuwania, Consultant Nephrologist & Transplant Physician, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road, successfully performed a Kidney Transplant on a 45-year-old man who was suffering from Chronic Interstitial Nephritis. The man received the organ and underwent the surgery on World Kidney Day itself.
Patient, Mr Aloysius was suffering from Chronic Interstitial Nephritis (Kidney Inflammation) – a stage 5 disease of the Kidney – underwent a successful Kidney Transplant at Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road. The patient is from Mumbai but has been staying in Dubai for work purposes. He was undergoing dialysis for 4 years and was registered 2 years back with Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road for a Kidney Transplant.
Dr. Puneet Bhuwania, Consultant Nephrologist & Transplant Physician, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road said, “Chronic Kidney disease is a disorder in which the kidneys are damaged and are not functioning normally for more than 3 months. In children, CKD can be caused by congenital defects, urinary tract infections, and hereditary illnesses, whereas diabetes and high blood pressure are major causes in adults. Children’s CKD symptoms may not become apparent until the disease has gone to severe stages. Early detection and treatment can assist in reversing and preventing additional kidney damage.”
Dr. Bhuwania further said, “The surgery was a success and was kept under observation in a state of the art transplant ICU and under the watchful eyes of trained staff where he was able to recover completely.”
“For the last 2-3 years I was suffering from kidney problems. I had to undergo dialysis and the thought of getting a donor seemed far. But, the doctors at Wockhardt Hospitals assured me to not lose hope and finally I got a suitable donor. I thank the doctor for helping me to move freely again” concluded Patient Aloysius.
