Report informs, Head of the Surgery and Organ Transplantation Department of the Central Hospital of Oilmen, Mirjalal Kazimi said at a press conference.
According to him, one of the main problems was that patients took to foreign countries: “Earlier, 40% of our patients were those who went abroad and came back; now, 95% of patients do not go overseas anymore. The rest is free to go anywhere they want for treatment.
