The transplant was carried out at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. Meanwhile, the hospital also received two kidneys and a liver from a road accident victim. While one of the kidneys were transplanted into a 38-year old woman, the other was sent to a patient in Thane's Jupiter Hospital.
The liver, in turn, was sent to a 57-year old man from Gujarat who was in a critical condition.
Doctors in the city are overwhelmed with citizens' participation in organ donation programs. "It is saving lives", said Dr Ram Narain, Executive Director of the Jupiter Hospital.
