“Dilip tells me how he has been conducting regular town halls with all the hospitals: ‘These are tough times for our staff. Be it the cleaning staff or the nurse or the doctor or even the security personnel, everyone is under tremendous stress. They hear about cases of medical staff getting infected in other hospitals and are concerned not just for themselves but their families as well. We have staff who have elderly parents and young kids at home and these people do not want to go home in the fear of exposing them to the virus.  There are accounts of the medical staff being discriminated against by their landlords, neighbours and friends. It is not just a financial or a business crisis, but one where the entire humanity is being tested” – Disha Chabra

Doctors say cadaver kidney transplantation dropped after Covid outbreak- Dr Sankaran Sundar, Consultant - Nephrology, Transplant Physician, Head, International Transplant Services.

November 27, 2020

Dr. Sudarshan Ballal, Chairman of Manipal Hospitals says, “At Manipal Hospitals, we have come to realize that the new normal in our lives has to coexist with the pandemic. Also, over a period of time, it becomes inevitable especially in emergencies, living transplantation is the only chance of saving a life. Manipal Hospitals was one of the first to give hope and set another benchmark by deciding to step up to the new normal situation.”

At present, approximately 90% of the transplanted kidneys in India are from living donors and in most cases, they are related to the patient. The rate of successful kidney transplants in recent times has seen a huge improvement due to advances in medical science, said Dr Sankaran Sundar, Consultant - Nephrology, Transplant Physician, Head, International Transplant Services, Manipal Hospitals Old Airport Road. 
   

Approximately 220,000 people in India require kidney transplantation annually due to kidney failure mostly resulting from long-standing diabetes and hypertension. However, only 7,500 transplants are possible due to the lack of donors, said Dr Vishwanth. S, HoD and Consultant - Nephrology, Transplant Physician, Manipal Hospitals Old Airport Road.  

A kidney transplant offers a better quality of life than dialysis for those with end-stage renal disease. With the Covid-19 pandemic, there is an obvious concern about the risk of acquiring an infection during the transplant process, said Dr Deepak Dubey, HoD and Consultant – Urology, Robotic Surgery and Renal Transplant, Manipal Hospitals Old Airport Road.
