Lucianas Testimony

Luciana is a little two-year-old girl who, one week after being born, was referred to our Hospital
Pablo Tobón Uribe due to a jaundice pathology. She was subsequently diagnosed with an orphan
disease called biliary atresia.

During Luciana’s admission process, our team of specialists did multiple tests to determine the
condition of the patient. One of the tests the team was able to perform was an endoscopy, which
allowed diagnosing in a timely manner that an inflammation of the stomach and esophagus veins
caused bleeding in that area, meaning that Luciana required surgery. The procedure was
performed through the interventionism service, a minimally invasive technique for the patient.

After the surgery, Luciana went home for the first time. She needed to wait a few months for her
to reach the ideal weight and height to be able to have a liver transplant. Such procedure was
carried out at our Hospital when Luciana turned seven months old, with a transplant from a living
donor: her mother.

“I am immensely grateful to the Hospital for looking out for its patients, for those kids that arrive
day in and day out with complex diseases. I am also incredibly grateful to the team of
professionals who were always willing to help us and give encouragement by telling us that
everything was going to be OK. My sincere thanks to all of them, who put their whole Soul into this
beautiful job of saving lives.” Paola, Luciana’s mom.
