Transplantology is a field of medicine that covers the issues and problems of organ transplantation, as well as the development of ways to create artificial organs.
It is necessary to turn to a transplant doctor in cases when one’s own organ or part of the body loses the ability to perform its functions. The causes of dysfunction of their own organs include: congenital anomalies, diseases or injuries, poisoning. For example, when receiving severe burns in a fire, they offer a transplant of their own intact skin.
In theory, all transplants can be transplanted, but at the moment such operations are possible on the kidneys, liver, heart, pancreas, bone marrow, skin and lungs.
