Sushma Swaraj Undergoes Successful Kidney Transplant Surgery; Currently Under Observation

Published on 10 December, 2016 at 5:21 pm By

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on December 10 underwent the much-awaited kidney transplant surgery at Delhi’s AIIMS Hospital, with the organ being donated to her by a living unrelated donor.

According to NDTV, her surgery lasted nearly five hours and was conducted at AIIMS Cardio-Thoracic Science Centre.

The team of doctors that operated on her also included AIIMS Director MC Mishra and surgeons VK Bansal, V Seenu, along with nephrologist Sandeep Mahajan.

“The surgery started at 9 am and ended at 2.30 pm following which the minister has been shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in the same building.”

Though the identity of Sushma’s donor is currently unknown, any living, unrelated donor, who is emotionally attached to the recipient, can become a donor.

 

This ‘unrelated’ donor can be anyone from a friend to a relative or even a neighbour and can donate his/her organ if no suitable donor was available in the immediate family.



In Swaraj’s case, the doctors had obtained a clearance from the authorisation committee prior to the procedure so every step was followed.

Swaraj is 64-year-old and has been suffering from diabetes for some years now.

She was admitted to Delhi’s AIIMS hospital on November 7 after a kidney failure. She has since then been under maintenance dialysis and was undergoing dialysis thrice a week.

Even before November 7, Swaraj had been unwell and was in and out of the hospital for last few months.
