Transplant surgery was first performed in Buryatia
In the Republican Clinical Hospital of Ulan-Ude named after N. A. Semashko, a kidney transplant operation was performed for the first time. The recipient is a 40-year-old woman, the donor is her relative.
According to the press service of the government of Buryatia, now in the region about 500 people need dialysis, which means that they are constantly attached to the machine and cannot live and work without regular visits to the hospital. Therefore, as the head of the republic, Alexei Tsydenov, noted, it has become a vital necessity to master such operations and train surgeons.
The specialists of the Shumakov Center helped the Buryat doctors at all stages: from training to surgery. The regional government purchased the necessary equipment. Previously, all patients who needed a transplant were sent to federal centers, added the chief freelance transplantologist of the region Vladimir Ilyinov. The operation lasted three hours. Everything went on as usual.
