After first kidney transplant in August 2013, followed by region’s 1st successful ABO-incompatible (Different Blood Group) kidney transplant, doctors at Max Hospital, Mohali broke blood barrier in organ transplant thus giving hope to patients looking for donors without blood group matching.
The Kidney Transplant Unit at Max since its inception in 2013 has done almost all type of difficult surgeries. It’s in fact a first centre to perform ABO incompatible transplant in northern India with majority of transplants involving live donors. The centre has performed many cases of swap transplants and pediatric transplants.
Recently a person underwent kidney transplant for 3rd time at Max, which is very rare even at centers like PGIMER Chandigarh after his first two transplants failed.
The 47 years old male patient had undergone two transplants in the leading hospitals in Chennai and Chandigarh in 2003 and 2007 respectively. First time, he got kidney from his wife but had graft loss in 2007. In his second transplant, his father donated the kidney for him.
