What is Transplantation Surgery?
Transplantation Surgery centers on the division of medicine that revolves around the complexities and transplantation of organs from a donor to an ill recipient. Organs and tissues that can be transplanted are: liver, kidneys, pancreas, heart, lungs, intestine, cornea, middle ear, skin, bone, bone marrow, heart valves, and connective tissues.
What are some of the services that Transplantation Surgeons provide?
Transplantation Surgeons specialize in particular organ transplants or certain areas of transplant like cardiovascular, neurological, or digestive. These important physicians work round-the-clock as viable organs become available and perform surgeries lasting up to 24 hours, depending on the organ, system, patient and severity of illness. They depend heavily on their team of medical personnel from other medical specialists, nurses, and medical assistants.
