Our chief of transplantation, Dr. Doug Hanto, has strong opinions about the ethical issues surrounding solicitation of organs for transplant. He recently set those forth in an article in the New England Journal of Medicine. Here is a summary from the Boston Globe's White Coat Notes.
Dr. Hanto has built a very successful solid organ transplantation program at BIDMC. We are proud of the work he and his colleagues have done. I am also proud that he has chosen to engage directly in these very controversial subjects. I also agree with him. Check it out and see if you do, too.
