Spain treated its 100,000th transplant patient in February, it was confirmed Wednesday by the Spanish National Transplant Organization (ONT).

The 100,000th transplant operation was carried out on February 15 at the Dr Peset Hospital in Valencia. It was a kidney transplant and the ONT confirmed that the recipient is recovering well after receiving the organ.
