    External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday underwent a scheduled kidney transplant at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here, sources said.

    According to the sources, the transplant procedure began at 8.30 a.m and ended around 2.30 p.m.

    “The surgery got over around 2.30 p.m and things are fine till now,” the source told IANS.

    Sushma’s surgery was performed by AIIMS Director M.C. Misra and Sub-Dean V.K. Bansal apart from a few other senior doctors.

    She underwent the transplant surgery at the Cardio Thoracic Neurosciences centre of AIIMS.

    Earlier, the team of doctors constituted for the surgery included Head of Endocrinology Nikhil Tandon, Head of Pulmonary Medicine Randeep Guleria, Chief of Cardio Thoracic and Head of Nephrology Sandeep Mahajan.

    The possibility of having Swaraj’s daughter as a potential donor was turned down by the doctors as she too was diabetic and suffering from obesity.

    Doctors said Swaraj was undergoing dialysis whenever required.

    Swaraj on November 16 said in a tweet that she was admitted to AIIMS because of kidney failure.

    The 64-year-old, who has been in and out of AIIMS for the last few months, was admitted to the hospital on November 7.
