The German Society for Tissue Transplantation (DGFG)
The German Society for Tissue Transplantation (DGFG) organises tissue donation nationwide and provides patients with corneas, amniotic membranes, heart valves, blood vessels and bone transplants. The DGFG is the nationwide partner for more than 100 donor hospitals and almost 200 transplanting institutions from all over Germany. We support clinics in establishing tissue donations, we help doctors to provide their patients with transplants and we ensure the management of tissue banks.
Therefore, we are the largest tissue network in Germany.
Behind us stand four university hospitals and a Diakonie hospital. We operate on a non-profit basis. For the past 25 years we are setting standards in tissue medicine.
