    The Nizam Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) hospital in Hyderabad has completed 50 successful kidney transplant surgeries in the past four months under the Arogyasree scheme. This scheme is run by the State government and provides free treatment worth 15 lakhs per patient. NIMS hospital has been performing kidney transplant operations since 2014 and has completed a total of 862 surgeries to date, averaging 100 operations per year since 2015. Last year, the hospital performed 93 kidney transplant surgeries.

    The Arogyasree scheme provides free organ transplant surgeries, including heart, liver, lung, pancreas, skin, cornea, bone tissue, heart valve, and blood vessel transplant surgeries, making expensive medical treatment accessible to the poor. Telangana Health Minister T Harish Rao congratulated the NIMS doctors who performed the kidney transplant surgeries and highlighted that Telangana was leading the country in organ donations. The government aims to continue providing advanced medical treatment to those in need and has allocated 35 crores to set up an organ transplant centre at Gandhi Hospital.

    The NIMS Urology Team, led by Dr Rahul Devaraj, Professor and HoD, along with other doctors and the anesthesia team, have contributed to making NIMS Hospital one of the top hospitals in the country for kidney transplants. The recent success of completing 50 kidney transplant surgeries in just four months is a testament to the dedication and expertise of the NIMS Urology team. The minister commended the Arogyasree scheme for making expensive medical treatment accessible to the poor and encouraging more organ donations to provide a better quality of life to those waiting to enroll in the Jeevan Dhan program.

    The services will be expanded once the organ transplant centre at Gandhi Hospital is operational, ensuring that advanced medical treatment is accessible to all, regardless of their financial situation.
