Sharing the word of wisdom from Prof.SYTan,our nephrologist and professor of medicine:
"There is no use being the first centre to do successful renal transplant surgery if there will not be a continuous programme of cadaveric donations and transplant surgery."
"Our country has one of the lowest rate of cadaveric organ transplant (almost non-existent). Most of cadaveric organs are harvested from fatal road traffic accident victims. A country like ours which have one of the highest accident death rates in the world have an almost non-existing cadaveric organ donation programme is quite a pity (pilospeaks:
damn tragedy) . Long way to vision 2020."
He also did comment about the Malaysian culture where one would boast endlessly about the "facilities", but always lacking in the "service" department. So true, so true.
