In a medical breakthrough, MGM Healthcare’s Centre for Abdominal Organ Transplant team in Chennai has successfully performed a simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant on a 34-year-old patient. The procedure was executed with the support of a programme developed by MGM Healthcare that helps underprivileged patients get access to expensive treatments. The surgery took 12 hours to complete and involved 12 doctors and three anaesthetists. This operation marks a significant milestone in Chennai’s rapidly growing transplantation field, and MGM Healthcare continues to lead the way.
