A team of doctors at Fortis harvested five organs – a kidney and liver were sent to its Bannerghatta Road unit, the heart to its Fortis’ Chennai unit, another kidney to INU Hospital and the corneas to Nethradhama eye hospital, said a statement from Fortis.

In the other, a 30-year-old woman, who met with an accident near Chitradurga district and was shifted to Fortis hospital, Bannerghatta Road here, for further treatment was declared brain-dead by the doctors.

Following this, her family decided to donate her organs.

The team at Fortis harvested eight organs – a kidney and liver were allocated to Fortis Hospital Bannerghatta Road, the heart valve to Manipal hospitals, corneas to Minto hospital, lungs to Fortis Malar, Chennai, another kidney to JSS Hospitals, Mysore, and small intestines along with abdominal wall to Apollo Hospital, Chennai, the statement added.
