  • Nothing different was happening to Mr. Hooda as well; life was at the lowest point for him now.
  • Tired and debilitated, he held on to the ‘ only twig in water.’ Visiting doctors after the doctor was all he did.
  • His days started with appointments and ended in tried failures.
  • After six months of the heavy burden and futile attempts, he met Dr. Giriraj Bora, joint chief- Liver Transplant and Sr. Consultant- GI and HPB surgery at Artemis Hospital.

  • No doctor could give him a full guarantee of successful operation or survival rate.
  • However, the doctors of Artemis Hospital laid the heroic act of managing a cadaveric donor amid Corona.
  • Dr. Bora said, “ An organ retrieval was done from Kolkata where a doctor had bravely decided to donate his organ after death. At Artemis Hospital, we made efforts to go to the city and airlift the organ, which was brought to us through the green corridor. All this was done when covid was at the peak.”
