After the second case I was really exhausted, after the adrenaline drops from such high level operations you will feel exhausted, but there was an overwhelming sense of gratitude that covered the exhaustion. Gratitude for so many things, at that time thanked God for the safe surgery, for gifts of hand precision and the mind to decide best for patients. It’s just a long time coming for me,years of waiting that transplant be a reality in the cordillera region. Would like to thank the people who are instrumental for this to be a reality, Dr Ed Biteng and Dr Virgie Biteng for showing true leadership thru action, your support is so palpable it’s simply inspiring. May God bless you more. Mam Shanna one of the best nurses I’ve worked with, she is our transplant coordinator and secret weapon.The efficient and enthusiastic OR Staff of CHDG thank you and of course the KT TEAM.

the KT TEAM is composed of 2 urologists 3transplant surgeons 2 anesthesiologist & 1 nephrologist .ALL graduates of the NATIONAL KIDNEY AND TRANSPLANT INSTITUTE. It’s like a mini reunion of a cohesive team from different batches it’s fun, but in another perspective a KT team is actually a team of elite highly trained doctors trained and certified by the only institution in the Philippines (NKTI) assembled together for a common goal, the real gift of life, kidney transplant.. 

Thank you to the KT TEAM doctors Feb,Carlos, Jucel, Noli,Jon and of course dr Simangan & Dra Marrero.. 

Pls pray for the speedy recovery of our dear patients.

To God all be the Glory.
