Bangalore Medical Services Trust Felicitates The Unsung Heroes Of State Organ And Tissue Transplant Organisation In Karnataka
On the 40th Anniversary of non-profit trust, Bangalore Medical Services Trust (BMST), the charitable organization felicitated the unsung heroes of State Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (SOTTO) of Karnataka, who make the challenging process of organ donation and transplant successful. As a champion of the cause of organ donation in Karnataka, Dr. K Sudhakar, Honourable Minister for Health & Family Welfare and Medical Education graced the event to felicitate the heroes.
Before the doctor performs the intricate surgery for an organ transplant, there are a number of people who are crucial to the entire process who often go unnoticed. From the police who clears a ‘green corridor’ to ensure smooth transportation of the organ to the hospital, to the airport in-charge who ensure swift transfers, to the forensics team who perform crucial initial investigations prior to the transplant and more. Each of these individuals play a vital role in the process of organ donation and transplant.
