In the field of transplantation, the National Center for Surgery has great traditions!!!
In 1977 under the supervision of Valeri Shumakov and Laur Managadze 4 renal transplantations from a deceased-donor were being performed in our clinic.
The department of nephrology, hemodialysis and transplantation, which is functioning in The National Center of Surgery, is 20 years old. 20 years ago, in 1997, the kidney transplant surgery was performed from a living donor (a relative) in our clinic, this date coincides with the anniversary date. In total, 40 successful kidney transplant surgeries have been performed in the National Center of Surgery.
The department was established by Dr. Elguja Ghonghadze, pioneer of kidney transplantation in Georgia, who was first to perform 4 kidney transplantation surgeries from a living donor for the first time in Georgia in 1995.
In 2014, by the decision of the founder of the clinic, the department was named after Dr. Elguja Ghonghadze.
