NEW DELHI || Union External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday “successfully” underwent a kidney transplant procedure at AIIMS and her condition is stable.
The 64-year-old leader was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after the nearly six-hour-long surgery by a team of 50. AIIMS sources said the kidney was donated by a woman who is in her 40s and not related to the minister.
A team of senior doctors has been monitoring the minister’s condition round-the-clock. “The surgery was successful and uneventful. She is admitted in the ICU and her condition is stable. Her condition is being closely monitored by a team of doctors. The donor voluntarily donated her kidney to the Minister,” AIIMS director MC Mishra said.
