LH records 200th successful kidney transplant

With 200 kidney transplants completed with immense success, Lanka Hospitals (LH) still holds the top spot for patient care and standards in Sri Lanka. Patient Hirantha De Silva, a 58 year old from Moratuwa came to Lanka Hospitals after a long course of treatment at other leading hospitals in Colombo.

Speaking on his experience with Lanka Hospitals, De Silva emphasized the complete commitment each of his doctors exhibited to delivering the utmost care to each patient. "I first discovered that my kidney functionality was down to just 20 percent directly after I underwent a bypass in 2005 at a leading hospital in Colombo. As my condition worsened I found that I could not control the illness through medication and was soon moved onto dialysis.

However, my condition did not improve through dialysis treatment. It was at this point that I moved to the Lanka Hospitals, the dialysis treatment I received was now showing results and my condition improved steadily."

Speaking on the success of the dialysis treatment De Silva underwent at Lanka Hospitals Dr Niroshani Ganegoda, doctor-in-charge of the Dialysis Centre said, De Silva's case is one of many where results at our dialysis centre have far outweighed care elsewhere. With the latest technology and commitment to delivering the best service possible to our patients, our results speak for themselves."

With dialysis treatments twice a week, De Silva was soon able to go back to work and resume a normal life, it was at this point that he made the life changing decision to go in for a kidney transplant. Having found a compatible kidney, De Silva, under the care of Dr Sujith Somaiah underwent the transplant operation in October last year.

The operation was pronounced a complete success, with De Silva being able to walk just 4 days after the operation was carried out.

With the transplant completely successful, the medication required for him on a daily basis has also gradually reduced, allowing him to resume a completely normal life.

Speaking on the transplant Dr Sujith Somaiah said "This patient is living proof that complete recovery is possible even in the direst situations.
