Organ transplant surgery has saved countless lives. While this procedure can be difficult and risky, it has become one of the most recognizable types of surgery.
But how did we start transplanting organs, and how did we get to where we are today? University of Wisconsin Hospital Surgeon Dr. Josh Mezrich delves into that and shares inside stories about the day to day life of a transplant surgeon in his new book “When Death Becomes Life, Notes from a Transplant Surgeon.”
This book came out today, and WORT producer Nina Kravinsky caught up with the author to learn more about his experiences.
