Medical Breakthough Recorded As LASUTH Performs First Kidney Transplant


Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) on Thursday conducted its first kidney transplant ever. According to Vanguard, the hospital conducted a successful kidney transplant on a 56-year- old man in Lagos. The life-saving procedure took two and a half hours.

Leader of the transplant team, a Consultant Nephrologist, Jacob Awobusuyi, said the initiative was conceived three years ago.
“Before the operation, both the 56-year-old recipient and the 26-year-old donor who was the patient’s nephew expressed concern. But after the operation they were both fine,” he said.
