He states, the annual cumulative number of organ transplant surgeries all around Europe and the USA is ca. 500 while SUMS’ transplant team yearly performs more than 500 liver transplant surgeries in its Transplant Center. Dr. Salahi maintains that SUMS’ organ transplant team has successfully operated 4577 liver, 239 pancreas, and 36 intestine transplant surgeries up to the present. He remarks, successful kidney, pancreas, intestine, and liver transplant operations have made SUMS’ Transplant Department an internationally well-recognized organ transplant center.  As he notes, the history of transplant surgeries performed by SUMS’ Transplant Hospital declares that 99% of the transplanted organs are obtained from deceased donors and less than 1% are from close living relatives.
