Leading the Way

1988

Multi-organ transplants are still a challenging procedure, but the first combined liver and bowel transplant in 1988 paved the way. Doctors from the internationally renowned Multi-Organ Transplant Program at Western University’s affiliated University Hospital performed the procedure.

Since then, more than 5,000 Canadians have received transplants through London’s extensive hospital network. Today, multiple organ failure is no longer a death sentence.
