Gleneagles BGS Hospital Completes Bilateral Lung Transplant, Shatters Recovery Time Record


Bengaluru, India – Gleneagles BGS Hospital, Bengaluru, proudly announces the successful discharge of a patient following a bilateral lung transplant, marking a significant milestone in the hospital’s commitment to advanced care and innovation in thoracic surgeries.

Mr Anand Kumar, a 62-year-old man suffering from Interstitial Lung Disease/Lung Fibrosis, had been oxygen-dependent for several months, requiring continuous oxygen even at rest and experiencing breathlessness with minimal exertion. During the waiting period for the transplant, he had to be admitted twice in a month due to increased oxygen requirements and chest infections. Fortunately, a suitable cadaveric donor became available in time. The patient recovered quickly post-transplant and was discharged just 14 days after the surgery, a remarkable feat for such an advanced procedure.

Guiding this remarkable feat was Dr Apar Jindal, HOD, Heart & Lung Transplant Programme Director, whose visionary leadership paved the way for groundbreaking advancements in lung transplant procedures. Dr Apar expressed his satisfaction, stating, “Our multidisciplinary approach and unwavering commitment to patient-centric care have culminated in this remarkable outcome.”

The surgical team led by Dr Balasubramani Govini, Director, HOD Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery (CTVS) and Heart Lung Transplant, offered the patient underwent a transformative journey to recovery. Reflecting on this achievement, Dr Govini remarked, “The successful discharge of our patient underscores our dedication to providing world-class care and pushing the boundaries of medical excellence at par with western standards.”

Integral to the patient’s care were the expertise and dedication of Dr Shubham Sharma, Transplant Pulmonologist, and Dr. Manjunath P. H., Interventional Pulmonologist. Dr. Shubham emphasized, “Each successful transplant is a testament to the collaborative efforts of our medical team and the resilience of our patients.” Echoing his sentiments, Dr. Manjunath added, “We are proud to witness the positive impact of our collective expertise in enhancing the quality of life for our patients.”

Biju Nair, Cluster CEO of Gleneagles Hospitals, Bengaluru, emphasized the transformative power of this story, urging increased organ donation awareness to save more lives. “This success story underscores the critical need for organ donation and the life-changing impact it has on patients and their families. I extend my deepest gratitude to all the doctors, care coordinators and nurses for their exceptional dedication and outstanding efforts. We are committed to raising awareness and encouraging more people to become donors.”
