First ever cornea transplant in the Clinical Centre of Vojvodina

The surgeons from the Clinical Centre of Vojvodina have transplanted corneas in two patients for the first time ever – the hospital said on Wednesday.

The state-of-the-art equipment required for this surgical intervention was provided by the Provincial Health Secretariat, and now, thanks to the highly skilled surgical professionals from the Clinical Centre of Vojvodina, the waiting lists for this intervention will be shortened and patients will no longer have to go to other health institutions.

Cornea transplantation is a surgical operation where the diseased, blurred or non-transparent cornea is replaced with a healthy cornea from a donor. Once cornea is transplanted, the patients report a drastic improvement in the quality of their everyday lives.
