Transplant surgery is the surgical discipline involving organ transplantation. Thanks to modern advances, a wide range of organs can be successfully transplanted from donor into recipient, including heart, lung, kidney, liver, and pancreas.
Transplant surgery is a discipline that requires careful donor and patient selection. The immunosuppressed and co-morbid state of recipients means they are often complex pre-, intra-, and post-operatively. However, the benefits in quality of life that patients can often enjoy as a result makes it an incredibly rewarding discipline.
