The first kidney transplant in Tatmadaw hospital in Aungban, Shan State, was performed yesterday with the Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy technique, a surgical procedure that allows a kidney donor to recover faster.
According to the guidelines made by the Prime Minister during his visit in June 2020, the first kidney transplant was performed at the Tatmadaw hospital in Aungban in addition to the dialysis for various kinds of kidney patients.
The operation was performed with the cooperation of urologists and kidney surgeons led by Brig-Gen Saw Yan Naing of the Tatmadaw Hospital, kidney specialists led by Col Daw Khin Phyu Pyar, and anesthesiologists and specialized nurses led by Col Daw Yu Aye Latt.
In addition to the national defence duties, the Tatmadaw is also assisting national interests in one way or another and is intensifying the provision of public health services to the people in the regions and states where needed.
Kidney transplants have been performed in Tatmadaw hospitals since 1995, and as of today, 308 patients with kidney failure have been successfully operated on. — MNA
