    Speaking on occasion, KLE hospital chief cardio-thoracic surgeon Dr. Richard Saldanha expressed concern over the growing number of patients needing organs and very few organ donors in the community. List of patients needing organs is growing but lamented very few come forward to donate. When a kidney can be donated from living donors and transplanted from one person to another. The brain stem dead patients, organs like heart, liver, lungs, pancreases can also be donated and transplanted. This would help the save life of many people, he said and called upon people to come forward for organ donation to save lives.
