Belarusian doctors transplant parathyroid cells from living donor

Belarusian doctors have conducted a unique surgery. For the first time in the world, a group of Belarusian scientists has transplanted parathyroid cells from a living donor into patients. 

This sensation has shocked the international community. This is the first such surgery in the world's history.

Previously, the cultivation of parathyroid cells from adult donors was too problematic. Insufficient function of parathyroid glands can result in very serious consequences. The ready endocrine donor cells replace the lost ones and allow other patients to live a full life.
