Pune Doctors Perform Maharashtra's 1st Pancreas-Kidney Transplant
from The Times of India
A team of doctors has carried out the state's first combined pancreas-kidney transplant in Pune. The complex surgery on a 28-year-old management professional suffering from type I diabetes for 18 years has enabled him to take insulin shots to control blood sugar levels. The simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplant although common in western countries is rare in India. The transplant in Pune could be the seventh or the eighth one in the country, doctors said.
