Doctors at NIMS (Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences) hospital successfully performed a lung transplant operation under Aarogyasri for the first time. The patient, CH Hymavathi, has been suffering from a lung problem for years and relies on oxygen treatment. NIMS doctors determined that a lung transplant was the only option for her.
A 16-year-old student named Pooja from Warangal was declared brain-dead and her family decided to donate her organs. NIMS doctors took this opportunity to conduct lung, liver, and kidney transplant surgeries on the same day under the Aarogyasri program.
Coincidentally, Pooja had matching blood type and lung size with Hymavathi. The surgery was conducted on Tuesday by the doctors from the organ transplant department at NIMS. This successful lung transplant operation showcases the expertise and dedication of the medical professionals at NIMS. Organ donations and efficient coordination among the medical team played a crucial role in making this procedure possible.
This achievement highlights the capabilities of the public health sector and brings the total number of organ transplants performed at NIMS this year to 27.
