Medical Park International - Organ Transplantation Center


Medical Park Antalya Hospital Complex Organ Transplantation Center and Medical Park Göztepe Hospital Complex Organ Transplantation Center provide superior services with great success to patients not only in Turkey but also on an international platform in the field of kidney, liver and pancreas transplantations in particular.

Organ transplantation is the most effective treatment method used in patients with terminal organ failure for whom it is not possible to treat due to various reasons. In Turkey, organ transplantation operations have started gaining widespread acceptance with the first successful kidney transplantation performed in the year 1975.

Presently, patients who cannot regain their health by means of other treatment methods get a second chance thanks to organ transplantations, and their quality of life is sustained together with that of their families. In Turkey, kidney transplantation is possible by using the organ of a relative up to the 4th degree who is also a donor.
