Indian Nepalese Doctor in Sydney Has Performed The World’s First Dead-Heart Transplant Surgery (Updated)
Note: Just found out he is a Nepalese Doctor. Anyways, Very Great work by this Great Doctor. Proud of Him.
Dr. Kumud Dhital of University of NSW (Sydney) and his team has performed world’s first ground-breaking dead-heart transplant in Sydney. They have restarted the heart that has stopped beating and transplanted it to 57 year old grandmother, Michelle. Before the operation, Michelle couldn’t walk 100 metres, now she says she walks three kilometres and climbs 100 steps every day.
If they can do it here it can be done in India too giving hope to a lot of people who need heart transplant surgery.
“This approach to donation where the heart has stopped beating will be a lot more acceptable. We think it will actually enhance donation in those countries heart transplantation in most Asian countries is actually a rare event.”
Doctors think transplant rates will jump by up to 30 per cent. People from Asian communities are three to four times more likely than the general population to need an organ transplant.
