LAHORE: The first liver transplant in Pakistan was successfully conducted at Sheikh Zayed hospital.
The surgery, headed by the Chairman of the Sheikh Zayed hospital Amir Raza, was carried out by a team of doctors including Dr Tariq Bangash.
The 12-hour long transplant was done on a resident of Sialkot, Amir Raza.
The liver transplant centre at the Sheikh Zayed was inaugurated a year ago by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) with the total cost of Rs400 million.
Before this, India was the nearest place to get the transplant done from.
