PGI Chandigarh Becomes 1st Hospital of India to Perform Lung Transplant

 A team of tremendously experienced surgeons at Chandigarh’s most reputed Government Hospital PGI have recently created history in the medical field by performing its first ever lung transplant surgery and becoming India’s first government owned medical institute to do so. At present only Mumbai and Hyderabad’s chosen few private medical institutes provide the lung transplant surgery in India at a very high cost of Rs 30 to 35 lac.

But PGI (Chandigarh) has performed the surgery at a cost of Rs 7 to 10 lac successfully and that too without any prior experience in transplanting lungs. The lung transplant surgery has been performed on a 33-year-old woman suffering from a terminal lung disease.
PGI’s Chandigarh Team Of Tremendous Doctors 
The team of 20 doctors who performed the intense 12-hour long lung transplant surgery at PGI, Chandigarh were under a lot of pressure as they told the media that this type of surgery takes a lot of patience and is very demanding. The team of doctors was accompanied by a supporting staff of more doctors specialized in anesthetics, cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine neurosurgeons, transplant coordinators, resident doctors, and nurses staff.
After successfully completing the 12 hour long carefully carried out surgery the team of doctors did not take a single breath of relief as they were monitoring the condition of the patient post surgery. The patient is doing well right now. So it’s a good news for the doctors, whole PGI and patient as well.
