Afghan Soldier Gets Rare Double Hand Transplant With Indian Hands In Kochi

Published on 20 May, 2015 at 12:39 pm By



Abdul Rahim, a 30-year-old from Kandahar, lost his hands three years ago while diffusing mines in Afghanistan. For the past 6 months, he had been scouting for hand transplants in several places, including Iran. Rahim finally settled on Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences in Kochi. To get him the hands, the institute conducted an awareness campaign. The hands that were donated to Rahim’s cause belonged to a 54-year-old man who has been brain-dead since an accident. The operation was performed on April 10 and after much therapy, Abdul can now use his hands for day-to-day activities. He will need to be monitored for several more months. Rahim’s operation cost Rs 1.5 crore.
