In May 2023, the kidney transplant experts at Mahatma Gandhi Hospital (MGM), Jaipur, successfully performed swap kidney transplant in six patients. This exceptional event showcased the profound love and sacrifice of six families, resulting in a new lease on life for their loved ones. Although those patients with end-stage renal disease had willing kidney donors within their respective families, compatibility hurdles emerged. The exchange program involved recipients and donors from diverse family relationships, encompassing son and mother, husband and wife, wife and husband, and daughter and mother.

The kidney transplants were headed by Prof. Suraj Godara, Head of Nephrology, and Prof. TC Sadasukhi, Director of Renal Transplant Centre at Mahatma Gandhi Medical College & Hospital, Jaipur. As per the follow-up, the hospital reported that all the recipients and donors were doing well, and they were expected to resume their normal routines shortly.
