It may be noted that kidney ailments across the globe have been ranked as the third most fatal disease after cancer and cardiac illness. Nearly 100 million people die annually because of kidney diseases in  the world. In India, over 2.5 lakh people die with kidney diseases  every year. The populous nation needs not less than 90,000 kidney  transplants annually, where as it can afford only 5000 renal  operations in around70 official kidney transplant centers across the country. “We congratulate the physicians involved in the complex surgical  exercise that needs highly skilled consultants, resourceful technical staff with advanced technology, which is now available at our hospital. The healthy post-operation life of the recipient gives us a great satisfaction,” said Dr Jayanta Bardoloi, managing director of  Dispur Hospital. He added that the hospital would continue renal  transplantation at an affordable cost in future.

Speaking about the country’s kidney-health status, Dr Bardoloi revealed that India had been increasing the number of end-stage renal disease patients, when the kidneys start failing to remove excess waste and fluids from the human body compelling the patients to put on dialysis urgently. He also pointed out that high blood sugar and hypertension are two most common causes leading to kidney ailments.
