robotic kidney transplant after Gujarat and New Delhi The kidney transplant surgery conducted on July 2 at HN Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre (HNRF) Mumbai saw a woman donating a kidney to her husband Unlike regular kidney transplantation where the patient receives the kidney through a larger muscle cutting process robotic surgery is conducted with only a small incision and involves no cutting of muscle The Da Vinci robot is used in a specific way to ensure tremor free movement of the instrument thus causing no damage to the graft kidney This ensures minimal chances of infection and faster recovery of the patient and the donor Andheri resident Leena Murlidharan (55) donated the organ to her husband C N Murlidharan (59) after he was admitted to the hospital with renal failure “The family was apprised about the latest robotic technology and its benefits including lesser risk of infection lesser pain and a faster return to normalcy Higher magnification and finer scaled movement of robotic instruments ensured greater precision in this act” said Shruti Tapiawalla consultant at HNRF Doctors said that the particular robot has been in use previously for other surgeries but was used for the first time for a transplant A team of doctors led by Dr Inderbir Gill Head of Department Urology and Robotics HNRF and MD Distinguished Professor and Chair USC Institute of Urology University of Southern California conducted the surgery “The cost of this transplant is not much higher than a regular transplant process which is worth Rs 5-6 lakhs” Tapiawala added “It has been a privilege to perform Mumbai’s first robotic kidney transplant at the hospital considering it is the first of its kind in Maharashtra The team worked together and we are thrilled the patient and the donor are doing well and the operation was a great success” Gill said Gill added that robotic surgery allows kidney transplantation to be performed with great precision minimal blood loss and lesser chance of post-operative infection “This is an advanced procedure performed in very few centers in the world” he added Murlidharan had been on dialysis for the past one-and-a-half years He said “The robotic surgery involved much lesser pain I was initially reluctant but the doctors convinced me about the benefits I am happy that I went ahead with it” Narrating her experience Leena said “I decided to give my kidney for my husband’s normal life” who added that she did her own research about the surgery before going ahead with it Patients suffering from chronic renal diseases tend to prefer renal replacement compared to dialysis for various reasons Only three centers in India including Mumbai have performed these transplants as of now For all the

Indian Express App More Top NewsCongress vice president Rahul Gandhi finally returned to the public sphere after a near two-month absence launching his party’s ‘zameen wapsi’ movement against the proposed land bill at a farmer’s rally at the Ram Leela Maidan in Delhi on Sunday He was more articulate and pointed in his attacks perhaps because the Congress party seems to have finally settled on its anti-Modi weapon of choice ie the land acquisition bill As Parliament session begins today the BJP is bracing itself for political fireworks over the controversial ordinance with Congress leading the charge But lost in the heat of the rhetoric are some inconvenient truths about the bill itself more so the farmers themselves Foreststhat both Rahul and Modi seem to have missed for the political tree Rahulwas all fire and vigour on Sunday as he went after the Modi government and the BJP warning the farmers against the land acquisition bill saying they would lose both land and livelihood PTI "I’ll tell you how Modi ji won the election He took loans of thousands of crores from big industrialists from which his marketing was done How will he pay back that loan now He will do it by giving your land to those top industrialists He wants to weaken the farmers then snatch their land and give it to his industrialist friends Through the Gujarat model Modi ji showed that he can snatch the land of farmers quite easily and convinced the industrialists that he can do the same in the whole country This is Modi’s model — weaken the foundation then attach a ladder to the building paint it and show to the world that the building is shining" he said But Rahul may have been surprised to know that the land bill was not in fact the core issue at heart for the many farmers who had gathered for the rally They had other more pressing concerns to worry about “I am not aware of any changes to any law I came here because my crops have been destroyed" one farmer at the rally was quoted as saying by the Indian Express Another had said that he had travelled to Delhi to let the government know about the plight of farmers in his state after unseasonal rains but had been unprepared for the contents of the speech But amid the fury over the land bill and vows that the "Congress will firmly stand with farmer and workers wherever their land is being snatched" surprisingly Rahul’s speech did not make any reference to the rains and hail that has caused so much distress to farmers across the country He instead kept referring to ‘drought’ As pointed out on NDTV by Ashok Malik: In some senses Rahul seems not to have recovered from the defeat of 2014 Listening to him there was this inescapable feeling that he was in a time warp It was not helped by the fact that he referred repeatedly to his experience of visiting drought-hit farmers some years ago The crowd he was addressing was of north Indian farmers worried by a spell of unseasonal rain that has damaged a crop ripe for harvesting His mother in her speech took care to recall the unseasonal rain and the labour of harvesting which the farmers had set aside to attend the political meeting Did she have a better speech writer or simply better political judgement The references to drought did not go unnoticed on Twitter either: Rahul Gandhi went on talking about drought in todays farmers rally actually problem they r facing right now is unseasonal rain #PappuFarce — shailesh mayee (@ShanaShailesh) April 19 2015 Rahul Gandhi talking abt drought at rally while current prob is of untimely rainsPurana wala chit leke gaya tha @Being_Humor #RahulRally — Neo Einstein (@Neo_Einstein) April 19 2015 Talks irrelevant @MalikAshok: Time warp: Rahul Gandhi talks of drought he had seen some years ago Immediate farmer issue is unseasonal rain — Dr Harshit K Dave (@hkdave) April 19 2015 This is a gaffe by any standard For many farmers a proposed new legislation is the furthest thing on their minds And while it can be argued that the Congress can play a key role in educating farmers about the provisions of the new land bill what looks like complete detachment from their current predicament completely takes away from the credibility ofthe Congress campaign Not that Rahul is the only one to be caught out of step with the farmersin this regard Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Mann ki baat in March was devoted almost entirely to educatingfarmers on the finer points of the land acquisition bill at a time when farmer suicides were making headlines He too was roundly criticised for completely overlooking the immediate and urgent concerns of the very constituency he was promising to help He focused instead on telling his audience that he was ‘fixing lacunae’ in the existing bill and specifically referredto the consent clause issue Pointing out the omissionin a column for Firstpost MK Venu wrote: If you are addressing farmers reeling under the worst income collapse in possibly a decade how do you completely avoid talking about it This shows a certain psychology of self denial that Modi may be generally suffering from Modi was telling farmers many of whom on the verge of bankruptcy that he would use land acquisition law to build roads hospitals housing etc near rural habitats Many farm households who don’t know how they will pay the next few months’ bills for electricity fertilizer school fees or interest to money lenders would have found Modi’s talk a bit insulting Rahul had a clear opportunity here to show the farmers that he was aware of their current predicament That he was more in tune with their sufferings than the current BJP government?
