Hospital Clínic is the first Spanish centre to perform 1,000 living donor kidney transplants
The Hospital Clínic is a reference centre in Spain when it comes to kidney transplants. On July 27, 1965, doctors Josep María Gil-Verat and Antoni Caralps completed the first kidney transplant in Spain. In all the time that has elapsed since then, 5,000 transplant operations have been carried out in the centre, of which 1,000 have been from a living donor, being the first centre in our country to achieve this figure. Some numbers that undoubtedly serve to highlight the transcendental role that the centre plays in our country with regard to kidney transplants.
