A rare combination liver and kidney transplant is performed in Ghaziabad by a citizen of Uzbekistan

A team of doctors at Max Super Speciality Hospital in Vaishali, Ghaziabad, performed a rare and complex 16-hour combined liver and kidney transplant surgery, saving the life of a 46-year-old Uzbekistan native named Akhrorjon Khaydarov.

Khaydarov was suffering from recurrent ascites due to a failing liver and kidney, with his organs functioning at less than 20 percent of normal capacity. After a thorough evaluation, the doctors diagnosed him with liver cirrhosis and a non-functioning kidney.

Dr. Neeru Aggarwal, Principal Director of Nephrology at Max Hospital, informed Khaydarov about the possibility of a combined liver and kidney transplant, which would optimize the functioning of both organs post-transplant and ultimately save his life.

Remarkably, Khaydarov's daughter donated her liver, while his wife donated her kidney for the transplant surgeries.

In a groundbreaking move, the doctors decided to perform the liver and kidney transplants simultaneously, rather than in separate surgeries, which is the conventional practice. This decision required high precision and coordination among the surgical teams.

The hospital provided a dedicated operation theatre equipped with three interconnected operating rooms, catering to the liver donor, the kidney donor, and the recipient, which facilitated the successful execution of the complex procedure.

Senior surgeons Dr. Subhash Gupta and Dr. Anant Kumar highlighted the challenges of the surgery, including the long duration and the necessity for standby dialysis. However, they praised the proficiency of the transplant team, coupled with meticulous planning, focus, and state-of-the-art infrastructure, which ensured the best possible outcome for Mr. Khaydarov.

Following the surgery, Khaydarov successfully recovered and is now ready to return to his country, Uzbekistan, with a new lease on life.
