Organ Transplants

World acclaimed organ and bone marrow transplants have been successfully carried out in Korea in many occasions. The transplantation process begins with an interview with the corresponding coordinator. Various clinical checkups are then carried out to verify the donor’s condition as well as an interview with a social worker to evaluate the intentions to donate. All transplantation formalities must be approved by KONOS (Korean Network for Organ Sharing).

Korean transplant teams (kidney, liver, heart, bone marrow etc.), in collaboration with other staff members, provide a comprehensive medical care. Conferences are held at a regular interval by each transplant team to carefully examine each case. Transplantation coordinators offer moral supports to donors and recipients in dealing with their crisis. Setting up a meeting with individual internal organ transplantation patients with donors allows them to share their experiences and inspires others to consider donation.
