The Gift of Life
23 Jan, 2010
You can hear a clip from this episode on our BEST OF SEASON ONE file, available as a free podcast download on iTunes.
This week, we were joined in the studio by Dr. Thav Thambi-Pillai, a transplant surgeon, and Dr. John Donnelly, a family physician who received a life-changing pancreas transplant in 2004. Dr. Thambi-Pillai and Dr. Donnelly talked with us about organ donation, the transplant process, and the personal side to the field of organ transplantation.
Particularly memorable in this episode is Dr. Donnelly’s vivid recollection of the process he underwent many years ago in order to receive a life-saving pancreas transplant.
