Shalby Hospital Mohali launches services for kidney transplant, knee replacement

Srinagar, Feb 13: Shalby Hospital Mohali recently inaugurated its cutting-edge kidney care unit, a significant milestone in the field of kidney transplant services within the region.

Spearheaded by Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan, former Director of the Kidney Transplant Unit at Fortis Hospital, Mohali, and Dr K L Gupta, former HOD at PGI Chandigarh, the unit has already achieved a series of successful kidney transplants.

What sets this hospital apart is its innovative approach, allowing patients without a compatible donor to benefit from kidney transplants through “ABO incompatible/swap or deceased donor procedures.”

Dr Prabhjot Singh, Deputy CEO at Shalby Hospital, Mohali, commended Dr Ranjan’s expertise and dedication. He said, “A huge number of patients from the Jammu region have already been cured by successful kidney transplant by Dr. Ranjan and he is a very familiar name here. We also follow a modern immunosuppression regime based on risk stratification for donors and recipients, resulting in a remarkable success rate of nearly 100 per cent with minimal rejection incidents. The hospital also runs a post-transplant fitness programme called “Trans Care”, aimed at increasing longevity, preserving muscle mass, and minimising side effects of immunosuppression.”

Dr G. S. Natt, Senior Consultant and Head of Orthopedics & Joint Replacement at Shalby Hospitals Mohali, is an expert in the ROBO-N 3D Knee Resurfacing Technique (Robotics Assisted Natural 3D Knee Resurfacing). This innovative technique is set to revolutionise the treatment options available for knee arthritis patients.

The ROBO-N 3D Knee Resurfacing technique is a part of Shalby Hospital’s ‘Let’s Walk Again’ campaign. It combines surgical skills, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality to provide a personalised treatment plan for each patient.

“The benefits of this advanced technique are manifold. It leaves healthy bones, ligaments, and cartilage intact, ensuring minimal surgical time and physiotherapy. Patients can look forward to a fast-track recovery, natural knee motion, and there is no need for blood transfusion or ICU stay,” said Dr Natt.
