Guwahati - The Guwahati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) has marked a significant medical milestone by completing its first successful cadaver kidney transplant. Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who also serves as the Health Minister, announced the achievement on Saturday. This breakthrough came after the family members of a brain-dead patient generously donated two kidneys, which were then transplanted by an expert team of doctors at GMCH to two other patients.

"We are deeply grateful to the family members of the brain-dead patient. The expert team of doctors at GMCH successfully performed a kidney transplant, marking a first for Guwahati and the entire North East India. This initiative, if embraced widely, has the potential to save numerous lives," stated CM Sarma. He added, "We are also working towards establishing facilities for liver transplants in Guwahati."

Highlighting other medical achievements at GMCH, Sarma mentioned, "GMCH doctors have also achieved success in IVF treatments, with 36 embryo transplants resulting in 8 pregnancies and one cesarean birth. The cost of IVF at GMCH ranges from Rs 75,000 to Rs 1 lakh. Additionally, GMCH has conducted 28 successful bone marrow transplants."

Sarma further emphasized the hospital's role in providing healthcare under various PM schemes, benefiting over 53,000 patients. He conducted a comprehensive review of ongoing projects at GMCH during his visit on Saturday.
