Liver Transplantation Center ( center of exellence)
Kent Hospital is now one of Turkey's private hospitals where to date, our experienced liver transplant team has performed over 1700 successful liver transplants and over 150 transplantations per year.
The success rate of Kent Hospital’s liver transplant team in liver transplant to babies is above the world average.
More than half of all paediatric liver transplants performed in our country was realized by Kent Hospital.
Today, liver transplant is considered as a routine, effective and advanced method of treatment applied to many chronic organ diseases. Sources of organ transplants are divided into two classes: cadaveric and living donors.
Liver Transplantation with Living-related Donors is a the type of operation where partial liver is transplanted from living relatives (mother, father, siblings, spouse or other ) of the patient who has liver disease and is in need of organ transplantation. The relatives must volunteer for this.
In our living donor liver transplantations, each of the three steps of the procedure is performed by a specialist who focuses only on that portion of the procedure. Careful removal of the donor piece, transfer to the recipient, then connection of the blood vessels and bile ducts using a surgical microscope are required for a successful living donor transplant.
Obtaining the donor portion of the liver is performed by Assoc. Prof. Murat Zeytunlu, placing it in the recipient is overseen by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Murat K?l?c, and microsurgery for the anastamoses is performed by Prof. Dr. Mehmet Alper.

Our Transplant Team performs paired kidney exchange, also known as a “kidney swap” occurs when a living kidney donor (the relative or friend) is incompatible with the recipient, and so exchanges kidneys with another donor/recipient pair. This kidney paired donation transplant enables two incompatible recipients to receive healthy, more compatible kidneys.

Bone Marrow Transplant Center
Bone marrow transplant and/or peripheric blood stem cell transplant is the healing of the stem cells damaged by high dose chemotherapy (drugs) and/or radiotherapy (radiation) used in treatment of cancer and non-cancer blood diseases.
It is a quite easy procedure that generally does not have complications. Bone marrow transplantation is not an operation.
With the treatment which is also named as stem cell transplantation in our day, blood stem cells that will regenerate the blood system are given. This process covers a long lasting treatment.
There are Three Types of Bone Marrow Transplant;
Allogeneic Transplant: the transplant made by taking stem cells from the patient’s own siblings, family members or unrelated donors whose tissue groups match with the patient.
Autologous Transplant: the transplant made by collecting the patient’s stem cells from herself/himself and giving back to herself/himself.
In the center that consists of the doctor team of two hematology specialist professors experienced on Stem Cell, a biologist experienced in apheresis and stem cell freezing, 10 nurses and personnel experienced on their subject, there are 10 patient beds.
All diet kinds mainly being the neutropenic (freed of microbes) diet offered to the patients in our center are constantly inspected by a dietician experienced in respect of contents and quality standards.
Our specialist Psychologist provides the necessary psychological support to patients before and after the transplantation. For drug storage and preparation guidelines in chemotherapy and other medication applications, a Pharmacist renders service in our center.
In Kent Hospital, what we do more then others in the world in terms of screening?
In Kent Hospital, we have a unique check up unit in which the process is fully structured. We have the sample withdrawal, ECG and the exercise ECG unit, ultrasonography. The test packages which we created, rely on the guidelines of USPSTF (United States Preventive Services task Force). (Some of the panel contents exceed the minimum suggestions of USPSTF. ). Also if you have a default test package which your insurance or company supplied, we contemplate it to coverage of all health risks and give you a chance to have a complete screening.
There will come a time when people make their screening done yearly as the norm.

To Friends and Staff at Kent Hospital,
My wife, Anna Kalandarishvili, learned that she was infected with hepatitis C virus during an operation 16 years ago. Unfortunately, her liver fibrosis advanced over the years until it reached stage F2-F3. Despite treatment with interferon, her disease continued to progress. Three months ago, our doctors in Georgia recommended that we come to Kent Hospital in Izmir, Turkey for a liver transplant. To that end, we contacted Assoc. Prof. Murat K?l?ç in order to make the appointment with him and his transplant team. My wife’s condition was very serious... after the examination at Kent Hospital, a date was set for the operation by Dr. K?l?ç. He and his highly professional team successfully carried out the operation, and my wife had the chance to get back to her normal life.
It is difficult to express in words the gratitude and admiration we feel towards Assoc. Prof. Murat K?l?ç and his team for giving life back to my wife. We loved the friendly atmosphere at Kent Hospital, and the professionalism and kindness of the medical staff at every level. The hard work of our coordinator, Nana Svintradze, made our stay especially enjoyable and trouble-free.
Thank you for your care in helping my wife regain her health. Our whole family is very appreciative!
Sincerely, Prof. David Nozadze, PhD.
