pediatric heart transplant …the first successful operation of its kind in Lebanon

Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Ghassan Hasbani Monday visited the American University of Beirut Medical Center, where he met a 5-year-old boy who had undergone groundbreaking heart transplant surgery. The boy underwent a pediatric heart transplant – the first successful operation of its kind in Lebanon – on June 14. Hasbani met with the boy and his family, and congratulated the medical team that conducted the operation. “This type of operation proves that Lebanon is a major center of [medical care] in the Middle East,” Hasbani said.
