National University Centre for Organ Transplantation
NUCOT is the specialist centre for both adult and paediatric organ transplantation in the National University Hospital. We are a team of multidisciplinary medical professionals working seamlessly together to provide specialised care for kidney, liver and pancreas transplant patients.
At NUCOT, patients receive holistic care for highly complex procedures such as kidney, liver and pancreas transplantation with intensive and dedicated long-term follow-up. With advances in surgical techniques and improved medicine to prevent infection and rejection, organ transplantation is now recognised as an effective treatment option for end-stage organ failure patients.
Celebrating medical expertise and successes in organ transplantation since 1987
To date, NUCOT has performed more than 1,000 kidney, liver and pancreas transplants and demonstrated clinical outcomes comparable to international standards. In 2017, we celebrated our 30th year in organ transplantation and improving patients’ life-expectancy and quality of life.
We are a key institution for clinical training and research in the Southeast Asian region and have been actively raising awareness for organ donation and transplantation in Singapore.
