2 kidney transplants done at HCMC Children’s Hospital

Children’s Hospital No.2 in Ho Chi Minh City performed kidney transplants on two children this week.

On May 6 hospital surgeons along with their colleagues from Cho Ray Hospital operated on a 10-year-old boy in the final stages of kidney failure, who has been undergoing dialysis for six months.

The kidney, donated by his 44-year-old uncle, is showing signs of working in the boy.

Doctors also implanted a kidney donated by his mother in an 11-year-old boy, also in the last stage of kidney failure.
