Speaking of yet another milestone achievement in medical history of the state, Dr Anvay Mulay, Head of Cardiac Transplant Team, Fortis Hospital, Mulund, who conducted both the transplants said, “Our team of medical experts, Medical Social Workers and Nursing Units have enabled the two landmark transplants within a tiny timeframe; this would not have been possible without their relentless focus and determination to enable these transplants. We would not have been able to reach this far without the consent by the kin’s families, who have forever changed the lives of the recipients and their families. The surgeries have been concluded and the patients are now stable”.

Talking on yet another account of clinical excellence, Dr S Narayani, Zonal Director, Fortis Hospital, Mulund, said, “We salute the brave parents of the 14month old boy from Surat and the husband of the 45yr old female from Karjat, for consenting to donate; their kin lives on in the form of the recipients.
