Starting from the upcoming new year, the super-specialty wing of RNT, Udaipur, the largest government medical college in the region, is set to launch a ‘Kidney Transplant Unit.’ A important step awaits approval, as a team from the Rajasthan University of Health Sciences (RUHS) is scheduled to conduct a inspection within the next one or two weeks. The cases of kidney patients in the Udaipur region is notably high, with approximately more than 2,000 patients in Udaipur alone. Across the entire region, this number escalates to around 5,000-6,000. These patients heavily depend on Dialysis as their primary form of treatment.

Many of the patients have received advice from doctors to undergo kidney transplant surgery. However, due to the unavailability of this surgical procedure locally and its high cost, a mere 50-60 patients choose to travel to Ahmedabad for their kidney transplants. Additionally, some patients opt for medical facilities in Jaipur and Indore, Madhya Pradesh. However, this remains a challenge for kidney patients in accessing specialized treatments within the Udaipur region.

Following the team's inspection, once the unit becomes operational, it will bring considerable relief to kidney patients in the southern region. No longer will these patients need to journey to Ahmedabad, Indore, or Jaipur for transplantation. Currently, in Rajasthan, governmental arrangements for kidney transplants are available in Jaipur and Kota. However, the unsuccessful attempt in Jodhpur led to its discontinuation. Now, this provision is being initiated in the super-specialty wing of Udaipur.

Adequate infrastructure has been meticulously prepared for this purpose, with all necessary resources. The team from RUHS has already conducted inspections three to four times. Now, only the final inspection remains pending. 

In MB Hospital of the Udaipur region, there is an influx of approximately two to two and a half thousand patients suffering from kidney failure. Notably, among this group, 80% of kidney donors have been women, with the patient's mother and sister actively participating. However, from this it is evident that the majority of transplants take place within the household.
