What is the Transplant Center?

Organ transplantation is the only fundamental and radical treatment for patients with end-stage diseases for which other treatment options are no longer adequate. Okayama University Hospital is one of the few certified multi-organ transplant institutions in Japan, dealing with lung, liver, kidney, small intestine, and other transplants. Among them, the Organ Transplant Center at Okayama University Hospital was established in January 2011 as the first facility of its kind in Japan to handle all aspects of transplant surgery specifically. The lung transplant center is the largest such center in Japan. The liver transplant center is among the largest in Japan. The comprehensive organ transplant center manages every aspect of transplantation from planning of transplant options through to post-transplant care. The Transplant Center has experts on the transplantation of each organ, and always strives to save patient life!
