The first child kidney transplant was operated on at the Urology and Kidney Surgery Ward of Mandalay Hospital, and specialists, doctors and nurses on duty were seen being happy about the successful operation.

The Ministry of Health has announced that kidney transplant operation, which has been suspended due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic since February 2020, has now resumed as a gesture of hailing Diamond Jubilee Independence Day.
On 29 November 2019, a 23-year-old female patient and a 25-year-old twins donor underwent a kidney transplant operation at the 500-bed Yangon Speciality Hospital.
The kidney transplant was successfully completed, and the patient and the kidney donor are in good health and are being monitored and treated in the intensive care unit.
Kidney transplant operation has been started in the 500-bed Yangon Speciality Hospital since 2014. A total of 54 successful surgeries have been performed during seven years from 2014 to 2020.
