Transplants

Transplants leading to an improved quality of life

The first successful adult human kidney transplant was done in 1954. Since then, many successful organ transplants have been done. Transplantation of various organs, tissues, and cells (such as kidneys, hearts, lungs, livers, and bone marrow) are now possible in children. Survival is steadily increasing, and successful transplants now lead to an improved quality of life. Learn more.
