Brain Dead Engineer's Organ Donation Saves Seven Lives in Surat
Family Collaborates with Donate Life Organization to Facilitate Life-Changing Transplants
The family of 24-year-old Shaishav Girishbhai Patel, a brain dead mechanical engineer from Surat's Hindu Talpada Koli Patel Samaj, has given a new lease on life to seven individuals by donating his vital organs, including his heart, lungs, liver, kidney, and eyes, through the Donate Life organization.
Shaishav, who resided in Mota Faliya of Hajat village in Ankleshwar tehsil of Bharuch district, was working as a farmer after completing his studies as a mechanical engineer. On March 13th, he suffered a severe head injury when his bullet slipped near the Taria bus stand Sajod while traveling from Sunev village to his village. His family rushed him to Jayaben Modi Hospital in Ankleshwar, where a CT scan revealed brain hemorrhage and swelling. Neurosurgeon doctors declared him brain dead on March 17th at Surat's AIIMS Super Specialty Hospital.
Walia Police Inspector Karan Singh Chudasama and Shaishav's sister, Nidhi, contacted Nilesh Mandlewala, founder and president of Donate Life, to inform him of Shaishav's brain death and express their desire to donate his organs. The Donate Life organization provided the family with complete information about the organ donation process, and Shaishav's father, Girishbhai, mother, Manishaben, and sister Nidhi consented to the donation.
A 22-year-old man from Kosamba underwent a heart transplant at Mahaveer Hospital in Surat, while a 40-year-old woman from Ahmedabad received a lung transplant at KD Hospital in Ahmedabad. A liver transplant was performed at Zydus Hospital in Ahmedabad, and both kidney transplants will take place at a hospital in Ahmedabad.
The Surat City Police established three Green Corridors to ensure the timely transportation of the lungs, liver, and kidneys from Mahaveer Hospital in Surat to KD Hospital and Zydus Hospital in Ahmedabad. Shaishav's organ donations have ultimately provided seven people with a renewed chance at life.
