The department of Urology and Kidney transplant Unit (KTU) Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Soura has conducted more than 250 successful kidney transplants till date with satisfying results, an official statement said on Saturday. “These results are at par with any other center in the country with morbidity, mortality within permissible limits,” the statement said.

Head of department Urology and renowned urologist, Dr Saleem Wani, said that renal transplantation has increased patient survival and it is in this context that SKIMS took a lead in human organ transplantation in the state after Kidney transplantation program was established in SKIMS in 1999.

The Institute was authorized to carry renal transplantation in 1999 as per the J&K Transplantation of the Human Organ Act 1997 and is the only centre in the state authorized to do the kidney transplantation.

Dr Wani lauded administration for its continuous support and said that to start with SKIMS had only two-bedded transplant unit which has been upgraded to 12 bed unit.

He hoped that separate nepro-Urosciences hospital will be established as proposal for same has been submitted to the administration for consideration so that cadaver transplant program can also be started.

Dr Wani insisted that awareness in medical fraternity and community at large is required for success of the program. “It is awareness programs in the form of Continued Medical Education (CME’s), public meetings, awareness through print and electronic media which created positive attitude among masses and lead to husbands donating to wives, unmarried sisters donating for their sisters and brothers, unmarried daughters donating for their fathers, brothers donating for their sisters, and pediatric transplant,” he said.  

The director SKIMS appreciated the department for running the program successfully and alleviating the problems of poor patients. He said excellent outcome of the transplant program is the result of untiring efforts of the dedicated and committed team of transplant surgeons, transplant nephrologists, transplant anesthesiologists, Immunologists besides highly trained OT and KTU nursing team.
