Pune: Relentless work by Ruby Hall clinic for over two decades has enabled them to break the myth about organ donation which gives life to atleast eight patients. And to commemorate the success Ruby Hall clinic observes April 12th as Organ Donation day. Organ transplantations are carried out on the patients who are brain dead.
Interestingly, the clinic in last year has done maximum numbers of organ transplantation surgeries. In a press conference organized on the occasion, Ruby hall’s CEO Bomi Bhote, Director of NTU Dr Kapil Zirpe, Medical Director Dr Sanjay Pathare, Zonal Transplant Co-ordination Centre secretary (ZTCC) Dr Abhay Hupprikar, Ruby hall’s Operational Manager Sachin Dandavate, head of social service department of the hall Surekha Joshi were present.
Ruby Hall Clinic is organizing a special program to mark this day which includes a rally in the morning from Ruby Hall Clinic to Nehru Memorial Hall followed by felicitation of families of organ donors and sharing of experiences by those benefited .
Dr Bomi Bhote said that the Ruby Hall gives utmost importance to transplantation surgeries and organ donation. Two decades ago we first conducted kidney transplantation surgery on a poor patient and were successful in saving his life. In this last two decades we have carried out 44 organ donation surgeries, 72 kidney transplantations and 25 liver transplantations. We have conducted as many as eight organ transplantations in the year 2015 and have been the only one private hospital in the state to do so.
Elaborating on it, Dr Kapil Zirpe said that nowadays the organ donation and transplantation surgeries are getting good response from the society. Especially, in Pune we can see a high number of such surgeries being conducted. Still it is not enough. We need more number of such donors and receptors”, he said adding that bridging this gap is a big challenge before us.
Thus, we need to have more social awareness on this issue, keeping this in mind we have started observing such days at Ruby Hall Clinic, said Dr Sanjay Pathare. We can help hundreds of lives if we spread the awareness about the issues among the society with the help of doctors and media”, Dr Pathare added.
