Organ transplant

Turkey is the Leading Destination for Organ Transplantation in the World. 

Turkey is among top three countries of the world in kidney and liver transplants from live donors, according to the Turkish Transplant Coordinators Association head.

Turkey invests heavily in the health sector and looks to improve its service quality to boost the potential of health tourism, and experts say it is paying off, as more foreigners prefer the country for organ transplants.

Some 589 foreign nationals benefited from liver and kidney transplants from live donors last year, a small number compared to the total of 4,171 transplants, but it indicates that Turkey is gradually becoming a favorite destination for those seeking transplants thanks to its improved health infrastructure and skilled surgeons.

Health Ministry figures show that the number of foreign transplant recipients rose compared to only 359 people in 2017, as 391 foreigners received kidney transplants, while 198 were operated on for liver transplants.

The high survival rate after transplants and quality health services are among factors attracting patients from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas to Turkey.
