Robotic Kidney Transplants Conducted at Fortis

By 121 News

Jalandhar 29th September:- In a boon to kidney failure patients, robotic kidney transplants have now become a reality and are being successfully conducted at Fortis Hospital in Mohali. Unlike the traditional kidney transplantation where the patient receives a kidney through a large muscle cutting incision (approximately 25-30 cms), in Robotic kidney transplant, the kidney is placed through a small 5 centimeters incision, in the belly button, without cutting any muscle. As a result of this the blood loss is significantly less, chances of infection are minimal, there is hardly any pain and the patient's recovery is quick, informed Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan, Senior Consultant, Urology, Robotics and Kidney Transplantation, Fortis Mohali.

It's been a significant revolutionary medical advancement in the lives of the patients, which is very helpful for their recovery. Now Chandigarh becomes the third city in the country and tenth center in the world to regularly offer this highly sophisticated surgery.

Till date, twelve patients have received a successful kidney transplant through this technique at Fortis Mohali. The latest surgery was done on 27th September at Fortis Hospital, Mohali. Achieving this extraordinary surgical feat places Dr Ranjan in top ten surgeons in the world, who are capable of doing a successful Robotic Kidney Transplantation.  Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan said that till date we have done twelve Robotic Kidney Transplants, and all of our patients are living a healthy life with a functioning kidney now.

Unlike the traditional regular kidney transplantation, where the patient receives the kidney through a larger muscle cutting process, robotic surgery is conducted with only a small incision and involves no cutting of muscle. The Da Vinci robot is used in a specific way to ensure tremor free movement of the instrument thus causing no damage to the graft kidney. This ensures minimal chances of infection and faster recovery of the patient and the donor.

Sirsa resident Boti Devi(55) donated the organ to her son Sandeep (23) after he was admitted to the hospital with renal failure. Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan said that the family was apprised about the latest robotic technology and its benefits, including lesser risk of infection, lesser pain, and a faster return to normalcy. Higher magnification and finer scaled miniaturized movements of robotic instruments ensured greater precision in this surgery.

Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan said that it has been a privilege to perform Punjab's first robotic kidney transplant at the hospital considering it is the first of its kind in the stat. He informed that the team worked together and we are thrilled that all the patients and donors are doing well and all the operations have been a great success.

These patients were on dialysis for a varying duration. He said that the robotic surgery involved much lesser pain. He was initially reluctant, but the doctors convinced him about the benefits. He is happy that he went ahead with it.  Narrating her experience, Beena said she decided to give her kidney for her husband's normal life," who added that she did her own research about the surgery before going ahead with it.

Patients suffering from chronic renal diseases tend to prefer renal replacement compared to dialysis for various reasons. Only three centers in India including Fortis Mohali have been regularly and actively performing these transplants as of now, with excellent results.

Robotic kidney transplant is going to be the future in next decade. The incidence of adverse medical events and complications is one fifth to one tenth of a traditional kidney transplant and the benefits are immense. The kidney function and overall patient's recovery is far superior than a traditional transplant.The patient has a very small incision so his natural daily life is not altered after the transplant. The problem however is of it being a technically complex procedure and hence there are only a few surgeons who are able to perform this procedure and deliver good results. The learning curve is steep, thereby dissuading many surgeons from taking it up, hence it is practiced only in select elite institutions of the world.

#SOCIALSUPPORTS Organises Artery–A Silent Art Auction

By 121 News

Chandigarh 27th September:- It's time to let efforts flow where they need to! India's North-East region has been heavily hit by floods throughout the monsoon, and the good people at #SOCIAL have stepped in, to raise funds for rebuilding the region. #SocialSupports: ARTery -a silent art auction, with all proceeds going to support the Nagaland Chief Minister's Relief Fund.

While bigger cities get attention every season for the difficulties faced by their residents, the states in the North-East receive much lesser attention. In light of this, #SOCIAL has initiated #ARTery - so as to provide coordinated relief from across the five cities (that they're present in) to every afflicted area of the country via art, for a greater cause.

Shobita Kadan, Director - Marketing & Strategy, Impresario Handmade Restaurants, said that SOCIAL is an integral part of the cultural landscape of the young urban consumer. "Both art and contributing to the greater good are things that matter to them - so why not bring both into one space? We wanted to provide a platform for artists who wished to contribute to the rehabilitations through their creations.

Each stellar piece for the auction has been donated by independent Indian artists from across the country. The auction will kick-off with a live art piece on 27th September, where the artists will speak to the audience about their contribution and field questions from those in attendance. The art itself will be displayed at Sector 7 Social (right here in Chandigarh!), and for a minimum price - you can drop by anytime, to make your own bid from the 27st September the 3rd October.

So if you want to see how art can (literally) change the world, swing by #SOCIAL to pick your very own piece and contribute for the greater good, while you're at it.

It also helps to gain instant digital identity and global presence.

CEO of Career Lift Ed-Tech, Nitil Gupta said that educational institutes have a lot to offer when it comes to serving the society. They strive to provide the appropriate education to their students. But most of their efforts go unnoticed because of not being present online. The same can be achieved through a professional web presence. To meet this need we made Edu-CMS, a website specially designed for Educational Institutes, be it coaching institutes, schools, colleges or universities.
