Kidney transplants for adults and children are done here in Manitoba.
Heart, liver and lung transplants are done out of province with our partners across the country. Our teams provide patient care before transplant and follow-up care when the patient returns.
Does this mean that Manitobans cannot donate organs other than kidneys?
Absolutely not! Using the national registry, the Transplant Manitoba – Gift of Life team works with donor teams across Canada to offer this gift of life. Once an offer has been accepted, arrangements are made to schedule surgery with the arriving team. That team will then return to their hospital where someone is waiting for that life-saving organ.
