Aurangabad: Cadaver donation gives new lease of life to three

A cadaver donation occurred today at Sunrise Hospital in Nanded, Maharashtra.

A 55-year-old woman was recently admitted to the hospital after she met with a road accident. After a few days of treatment, her condition deteriorated and she was declared brain-dead by the doctors.

After counselling, the bereaved family made a brave decision to donate her organs. Even in their time of grief, the family knew that their consent could help save the lives of others.

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, ZTCC central transplant coordinator Manoj Gadekar from Aurangabad said, “This is the 19th organ donation in Marathwada region. A 55-year-old lady had met with an accident and her family consented to donate her organs. One kidney has been sent given to MGM hospital and another has been given to Kamal Nayan Bajaj Hospital in Aurangabad. The liver has been sent to Apollo Hospital, Navi Mumbai. The corneas have been donated to a government hospital in Nanded.”
