Specialists at Semmelweis University successfully completed their 1,000th liver transplant this week.
The procedure required the close cooperation of 100 members of staff, marking a ground-breaking event in the development of the Hungarian healthcare industry.
In 2018, 505 liver transplant operations took place in Hungary: 327 were performed at Semmelweis University. The department is the second-largest institute pioneering the newest research in heart transplantation, while it ranks fourth for kidney and fifth for liver procedures.
“The educational programs at the university are the greatest success of the process of internationalizing the higher education system,” said József Bódis, Deputy State Secretary at the Ministry for Innovation and Technology.
