Two kidney transplants were successfully performed at the Mandalay General Hospital on 8 and 9 January.
The operations were performed by professor surgeons, physicians, and specialist doctors from various departments, including Urine and Kidney, Anesthesia, Pathology, and Cardiovascular Surgery.
The hospital has performed 61 kidney transplants since resuming the operations.
In the 60th kidney transplant operation, a 45-year-old patient received a kidney from his 47-year-old sister.
In the 61st transplant, a 29-year-old patient received a kidney from his 29-year-old cousin. The operations took one and a half hours each.
The Mandalay General Hospital has been successfully performing two kidney transplants every month in a cost-effective manner while complying with the international standards.
