Doctors have successfully performed a kidney transplant on two patients of the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) — the hospital's second ever successful kidney transplant.

India’s Institute of Kidney Diseases and Research Centre (IKDRC) Kidney Transplant Surgeon Dr. Pranjal Rohon Lal Modi led the operation, said a press release from Inter Services Public Relation (ISPR) Directorate on Friday.

A six-member Indian specialists’ team, urologist of Dhaka CMH Brig Gen Md Shahidul Islam, and kidney transplant specialists of Dhaka's CMH took part in the operation.

In the press release, Brig Gen Toufiqul Hasan Siddiqui, Commandant, CMH Dhaka, stated that the hospital is planning to expand its transplant capabilities in the near future.

Though only the members of armed forces are getting this medical facility, there is a plan to open the facility for civilians in future, the release added.

The kidney transplant centre started its activities at the Dhaka CMH as per the Prime Minister’s pledge to provide health facilities to all classes of people, with overall assistance of the Army Chief.

There are around 30,000-35,000 more kidney patients in Bangladesh every year; among them, around 80% die due to a lack of proper treatment.

At present, kidney transplants are possible at only four centers in the whole country, ISPR release added.

Previously, on August 3, 2018, the same team successfully performed a kidney transplant on two patients at Dhaka's CMH for the very first time.
