Transplantation Center

Around 140 organs are transplanted each year at the university medical center Knappschaftskrankenhaus Bochum, and one fourth of the patients receive a combined operation. Therefore, the transplant center holds a top-ranking in the combined transplantation of kidney and pancreas in Europe. In Germany, the center has been first place for ten years in the field of combined pancreas and kidney transplantation and in kidney transplantations is one of the five most active institutions of this kind nationwide. By the beginning of 2011 Prof. Dr. Richard Viebahn and his team had transplanted more than 1,800 organs.

The transplantation center has its own ward and an aftercare clinic for follow-up treatment. Thus organ transplant patients are operated on here and also optimally treated with the necessary pharmaceutical therapy.
