For the first time in the country, a robot kidney transplant was done in a government hospital in Delhi. A man from Farurkhabad, Uttar Pradesh, who was suffering from kidney problems for five years, underwent a kidney transplant at Safdarjung Hospital. The patient’s wife has donated the kidney. The hospital administration says that in this surgery, which proved to be a milestone, due to the obesity of the patient, the robot had to be resorted to. Presently the patient is completely healthy. Soon he will be discharged from the hospital.

In fact, 39-year-old Mukesh had reached Safdarjung Hospital from Farrukhabad in Uttar Pradesh about three months ago. He had kidney problem for the last 5 years. He was currently on dialysis. The condition was such that kidney transplant was the last option of treatment. His wife was ready to donate the kidney. But a problem came from Mukesh’s obesity. For this, technology was used and surgery was done with robots.

Dr. BL Sherwal, Medical Superintendent of Safdjung Hospital, who is leading the team for the operation, described the surgery as a milestone for the hospital. While Professor (Dr) Anoop Kumar, Head of the Department of Urology included in the team, said that Mukesh was on dialysis for a long time. The surgery was done with his robot. Robotic renal transplant is a technically challenging surgery in urology. Currently, surgery is done with this technique in 4 private hospitals in the country. About 7-8 lakh rupees are spent on this. Whereas the facility in Safdarjung Hospital is completely free. The team also included Himanshu Verma, Head of the Nephrology Department of the hospital, Dr. Madhu Dayal of the Department of Anesthesia.

Robotics the better option
Dr. Anoop told that the patient was obese along with kidney. If the transplant was done in the normal way, then an incision of 12 cm would have to be made, due to which the patient would be at risk of infection later. At the same time, there is a possibility of hernia forming with pain. Women also have problems with simple technology. Robotic technology is advanced with the help of which these problems can be overcome.

His 34-year-old wife Ranjana donated kidney to 39 husband Mukesh. The doctor told that the donor is healthy and is under the supervision of doctors. According to the doctors, he can be discharged on Friday.
