A team of doctors led by kidney transplant surgeon Dr.Amanthana Marasinghe attached to the Anuradhapura General Hospital on last Friday (22) performed a miraculous surgery to save the life of a patient by transplanting his kidney and pancreas simultaneously.

The patient had been diagnosed with kidney and pancreas failure due to diabetes and was recommended an urgent kidney and pancreas transplant by the doctors attached to the Anuradhpura General hospital Kidney Research and Treatment Unit.

Doctors said that the patient’s kidney and pancreas were badly damaged as he had not received proper treatment for diabetes for 29 years.

A kidney and pancreas obtained from a youth who died in an accident were used for the transplant surgery with the consent of the deceased’s family members.

Doctors at the unit said that the patient is stable and healthy after 14 hours transplant surgery and his sugar level has also come down.
