Hunan Children’s Hospital has been approved as the only children’s hospital that has obtained dual qualifications for liver and kidney transplantation.

So far, the Hospital has completed 41 cases of liver transplant and 2 cases of kidney transplant in the past 5 years.

While abroad, by partnering with the Spanish DTI Foundation, the Hospital will expand the cooperation in children’s organ transplantation to enhance the international influence, and forge new cooperation outcomes.
