All about organ transplantation.

 

Organ transplantation is the process by which an organ is taken from one human being and given to another when their vital organ is no longer working as it should. This is an amazing and relatively recent development in the field of medical Science; the first organ to be transplanted – successfully -  was a kidney in 1954 and the world’s first human heart transplant was done by Doctor Christiaan Barnard in 1967 in Cape Town (South Africa). Human organ transplantation gives those who may have long term illnesses or damaged organs another chance at ‘the gift of life’.
