Syed Imran Ahmed Shah


Syed Imran Shah, 21 years old young man, met with a serious road accident and was admitted to Shifa International Hospital Islamabad with massive brain injury. All attempts failed to save his life and a team of experts declared him brain dead. Syed Imran Ahmed Shah's family informed of their wishes to donate Imran's organs. One kidney was transplanted on the 3rd of March 2010 at Shifa International Hospital, Islamabad by a team of surgeons headed by Dr. Saeed Akhtar. The second kidney was sent to SIUT and transplanted on the 4th of March 2010. A new era began for organ sharing in Pakistan. (Courtesy - The transplant team at Shifa International.)
