From TransplantChild, we would like to congratulate Ospedale Pediatrico Bambino Gesù for passing the threshold of 1000 Solid Organ Transplants From 1986, when the transplant programme started, till the date, the number of transplants performed at the hospital is 419 renal, 330 cardiac/lung, 252 hepatic and 1 intestinal.

“More than a thousand transplants: we are proud of having achieved that goal because so many children have been given a new chance at life”, underlines Dr Luca Dello Strologo, TransplantChild member and Head of the Kidney Transplant Unit of the hospital. “After 33 years of increasingly intense activity, the data on the survival of our young patients are encouraging. This is possible thanks to all those families who, with the donation of organs, despite the pain of the loss, make other young lives be saved and then thanks to the work of a very close-knit team that includes medical and nursing staff and the National Transplant Center which coordinates the activity throughout Italy “.
