The scheduled kidney transplant of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is ongoing right now. According to media reports, the doctors performing the transplant are AIIMS director MC Misra, VK Bansal, and Sandeep Agarwal — all prominent surgeons of the country.
According to the hospital authorities, the organ for Sushma Swaraj’s transplant was being harvested from a living unrelated donor. The clearance from the authorisation committee has been obtained.
Apart from the surgeons, who will be performing the transplant surgery, a team of doctors from other departments have also been constituted to monitor the health of Ms. Swaraj — a severe diabetic.
Earlier the possibility of having Ms. Swaraj’s daughter as a potential donor was turned down by the doctors as she too was a severe diabetic and a patient of obesity. Doctors also said that Ms. Swaraj was undergoing dialysis whenever required.
On November 16, Ms. Swaraj tweeted that she was in AIIMS because of kidney failure. Since then people around the nation are praying for her speedy recovery. The 64-year-old, who has been in and out of the hospital for last few months, was admitted to AIIMS on November 7.
We at NewsLeakCentre wishes for her speedy recovery, and may she’ll be back on the office to help people in needs.
