The First Private Teaching Hospital in South Africa

Transplant Unit


WDGMC’s Transplant Unit has established itself as a leading centre in liver, kidney and simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation.

The Unit is led by Professor Jean Botha and Professor Russell Britz who, through their pioneering transplant surgeries, are transforming the South African organ transplant landscape. Currently, this is the only Transplant Unit doing living donor liver transplantation and pancreatic transplantation in Southern Africa.

In striving to promote and develop the discipline of organ transplantation in South Africa, the Unit is able to successfully transplant solid organs in both children and adults. The Unit specialises in liver, kidney and pancreas transplants.

Transplant Network Group
All transplant patients and persons waiting for a transplant can join the group. The group meets every 3rd Saturday of the month.
