New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who underwent a kidney transplant on December 10, was on Monday discharged from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

"MEA Minister Sushma Swaraj has shown a speedy recovery after her kidney transplant and has been discharged today (Monday)," said the statement issued by the AIIMS' communication department.

According to the authorities, the minister's post-operative recovery was closely monitored by a team of specialists.

They included transplant surgeons and a team of nephrologists, cardiologists, endocrinologists and pulmonologists, as well as anaesthesists and critical care experts. The team also included hysiotherapists, resident doctors and specialised nurses.

The three-hour surgery was performed at the Cardio Thoracic and Neuro Sciences Centre of the AIIMS. 

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

On November 16, 64-year-old Swaraj had tweeted that she was in AIIMS because of kidney failure.

As no suitable donor was found among her blood relations, a willing unrelated donor was arranged and the transplant procedure was carried out on December 10 by a team of AIIMS specialists.

As Swaraj has been showing steady recovery, doctors decided to discharge her from the hospital.
