The Center completed 520 kidney transplants, 110 liver transplants, and 12 kidney and pancreas transplants with the intestinal organ with a success rate of over 95%.

Intestinal organ transplant team with the pride of perfect teamwork The teamwork of the surgery team determines the success of internal organ transplant surgery. The intestinal organ transplant team includes distinguished medical staff with clinical experiences in various fields. So, the team has been achieving good results through perfect teamwork.

Comprising the Department of Gastroenterology, the Department of Nephrology, the Department of Urology, the Department of Plastic Surgery, the Department of Anesthesia and Pain Medicine and the Department of Laboratory Medicine, as well as the Department of Surgery and intestinal organ transplant coordinators, the team is the great pride of KDH.
