The good thing is that families of Rio de Janeiro not only gain a new unit to perform the transplant, but a site designed exclusively for the child, guaranteeing a fun experience, though it is a difficult time that is undergoing surgery. We believe that the humanized care is essential for the patient to evolve even better - highlights the secretary Sergio Cortes.
