The Medical College of Wisconsin has made major strides in organ transplants. With its hospital partners, the Division of Transplant Surgery provides abdominal organ transplantation at Froedtert Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. On this episode of CTSI Discovery Radio, we’ll discuss new innovations in liver transplants, a current study to help kidney recipients, and the ethics of allocating organs to those on a “wait list”.
