Gastroenterology, Hepatobiliary & Liver Transplant

One of the most exciting advances in modern medicine is organ transplantation. We have a specialized unit for living donor liver transplantation. Our program was established in conjunction with Professor Tanaka from Kyoto University in Japan. He is the worldwide authority on the subject.

The first Africa/Middle-East transplant operation was performed in August, 2001. Since then, our hospital has seen almost 200 cases. The doctors who trained with Professor Tanaka now operate alone without any foreign doctors in attendance.

Some raise the ethical question of donating organs. We understand your concerns so a non-biased committee evaluated the issue. They determined that donation is allowable as long as there is no monetary compensation to the donor.

Currently, there are on average two surgeries every week done by our Egyptian team of doctors. The patient stays in the ICU for five days and then in a regular hospital room for the next two weeks. After the patient is discharged, a weekly follow-up is recommended.
