THANH HÓA — On June 17, doctors from Military Hospital 103 successfully conducted the hospital's 500th kidney transplant operation on a female patient from Nông Cống District, the north-central province of Thanh Hóa.

In recent years the hospital has made great strides in organ transplants, with particular focus paid to kidney transplants.

From 1992 to 2017, the hospital conducted 300 organ transplant operations.

In the first six months of 2019, as many as 100 kidney transplants were carried out successfully.

In the past, a kidney transplant took four to six hours; now the time has been shortened to only two hours. 

The hospital has applied advanced technologies in selecting organs, conducting surgeries and after-transplant care.— VNS
