The Capitol University Medical City Kidney Transplant Unit granted an accreditation last December 17, 2010 by the Department of Health (DOH) under the Administrative Order No. 81 s. 2003: “Rules and Regulations Governing the Accreditation of Hospitals Engaged in the Conduct of Kidney Transplantation”. This is due to the effort and hard work of the Transplant Unit Head, Dr. Jayson Sangkula, a Transplant Surgeon, and the rest of the administrators and staff of CUMC.


The First Successful Kidney Transplant in Northern Mindanao  


   Together with the expertise and support of the transplant team and the administrators of CUMC, we have performed the First Successful Kidney Transplant in Northern Mindanao. A transplant team composes of a Transplant Surgeon, Donor Surgeon, Nephrologist,  Anesthesiologist, OR Nurses and Staff and a Transplant Coordinator. In December 17, 2011, exactly a year after the accreditation, Miss Windelyn Jumamil, 24 years old, had a Kidney Transplant with her living related donor, her mother, Ms. Juvy Jumamil, 46 years old.  Miss Windelyn Jumamil was diagnosed to have Chronic Kidney Disease 2⁰ Glomerulonephritis under the Nephrology management of Dr. Gaudencio Dueñas, Jr. She underwent Hemodialysis, here at CUMC for almost a year before the transplant and has been working up for the transplant with her mother since.  It was not easy for Windelyn and her family to undergo such dilemma but still they took the right and easy path to solve her kidney problem, which is to do Kidney Transplantation.

    Kidney failure is a life-threatening condition faced each year by a growing number of Filipinos. When kidney failure reaches end-stage kidney disease, the only treatment options are dialysis or a kidney transplant. Kidney Transplantation is the best form of treatment for End Stage Renal Disease.  It is surgically done by placing a healthy kidney from another person into the body of another patient with ESRD, after proper and thorough pre transplant evaluation and management. Aside from being expensive, regular hemodialysis treatment cannot completely replace the kidney function, only a Kidney Transplant can. Other benefits of KT, aside from the socioeconomic are the cardiovascular benefits. It can significantly reduce death from cardiovascular events. It also helps in the quality of life of the patient, namely life satisfaction, physical and emotional well being, fully reversed uremic complications and the fertility returns after KT.

  Capitol University Medical City is also the first and only laboratory here in Northern Mindanao with a Chemiluminscent Microparticle Immunoassay (CMIA) or Tacrolimus Trough catering to post KT patients. This is a test that monitors levels of immunosuppressive drugs of these patients. It is measured regularly to determine if the concentration is adequate to prevent rejection, but not too much to cause toxicity.

   All patients with ESRD are candidates for KT unless they have systemic malignancy, chronic infection, severe cardiovascular disease, neuropsychiatric disorder and relatively extremes of age. The best option for possible KT patients and donors is to talk to their nephrologists. They may also visit the Transplant Office at Room 229, 2nd floor of this institution, email at moc.o1503296248ohay@1503296248cmuc_1503296248rh1503296248, call/text 09177067569.
