Brother from Ethiopia becomes a kidney donor to sister

After suffering from excruciating pain and discomfort for 8 months, the need for an urgent kidney transplant bought 25 year-old Dureti Hiboro to India from Ethiopia. Her brother, Duresa accompanied her to meet Dr. Amit Langote, a Nephrologist at Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai. Duresa confessed that when they first came in, they were unsure of the process but the staff at the hospital helped them greatly and guided them around. A successful kidney transplant was performed on Dureti by Dr. Amol kumar Patil, Urologist and Kidney Transplant Surgeon, with her brother being a donor. Within 25 days, both of them were healthy and ready to go back home. They thanked the clinical team for taking good care of them.
