Dr. Giriraj Bora is a renowned doctor and a senior Liver and Organ Transplant consultant at Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon. Being in this profession for so long, he has encountered numerous cases which were both critical and extensive.
One such case was that of Abdul Aziz. Abdul had suffered multiple health issues at a very young age.
Although he had a regular and risk-free delivery, yet after birth, he was diagnosed with jaundice.
This is a common incident in newborn children; therefore, the doctors did not pay much attention to the disease.
Later on, the young child started having episodes of vomiting and even went into a coma. His parents were terrified to see their child suffering to this extent.
After diagnosis, it was discovered that Abdul had ammonia build-up in his blood. The doctors proficiently worked on the disorder, and only when they thought the child has recovered, another mishap followed.
Due to the side effect of ammonia build-up, Abdul’s liver had given up, and doctors announced he had a liver failure.
The treatment of the patient was not possible in his home country. Doctors suggested Abdul’s parents go to India for liver transplant surgery.
In India, Artemis Hospital arranged a living liver donor who shared the same blood group as the patient.
On arrival, the patient was examined, and the operation was conducted. The patient and donor both are healthy in the present day.
Abdul luckily has shown no signs of illness or relapses since the surgery, as confirmed by his parents.
This is an example of another great story of how medical science has advanced to the level where saving lives against the most trivial cases has become possible.
