Fortis Hospital gives new hope after kidney transplant; the patient is an all-time topper in school

Date : March 10, 2015

Ujjwal Trivedi was presented to Fortis Flt. T. Rajan Dhall Hospital, Vasant Kunj with a bloated stomach accompanied by severe pain; pain in the legs and unable to walk more than short distance. Diagnosis revealed that he had failed kidneys and needed a donor very urgently. The surgery was led by Dr. Sanjeev Gulati, Sr. Consultant Nephrology, Fortis Institute of Renal sciences and Transplant, Vasant Kunj.

The patient, a resident of Varanasi, was just five years of age when he started having renal problems. It started with stomach ache he would have intermittently at school and at home. At times he had problems while walking accompanied with pain in both legs. His parents took him to a local doctor who after initial examination gave him an injection for pain. This made things worse for Ujjwal. When his condition deteriorated and they consulted the local doctor again he was unable to understand the boy’s condition. He advised that they should take him to a hospital where some tests could be conducted to detect his medical problem.

When Ujjwal fainted at school one day he was rushed for an ultrasound test which revealed his failed kidneys. The journey was a long one after that. Once the donor was identified as his mother the transition from there to the surgical procedure and then recovery was seamless.

Today Ujjwal is 13 years old, takes his medicines regularly, takes responsibility himself and wants to study to achieve great heights in life. He studies in St. Joseph’s School in Varanasi and tops the class in every exam.
