The first Irish transplant program in the U.S. has taken off, and doctors and transplant specialists say it’s paying off.
In just a year, the first Irish people have received transplants from four donors.
In the past two years, the number of transplants has nearly tripled.
The Irish transplant system is similar to other transplants in the United States, but there’s a lot of emphasis on organ transplants and less on the medical care.
This is the first time that transplant surgery has been performed on the island, and it’s a big deal because of the stigma attached to having a transplant.
Doctors said the success of the program has been a major factor in the rapid growth in transplants, and the program is helping to spread the word about transplant surgery.
In March 2018, a patient received his or her first transplant in the first transplant operation in the country’s history.
Doctors and transplant experts say the success has been important in making transplants more accessible to the general public, which can have a big impact on the health of people with HIV.
