Every once in a while, a genuine medical breakthrough occurs and I stop to read more. This one hits close to home. It is another case of “The Six Degrees of Steven Greer“.
An NYU transplant surgeon, who himself is a heart transplant patient and has been in a coma for a month, implanted as an experiment a genetically modified pig kidney into a brain-dead human and the organ was not rejected.
In 1997, I was chosen to be the Chief Resident for the NYU organ transplant program. I was only a second-year resident. Normally, the Chief of that rotation is a third-year. Clearly, they saw me being ahead of my peers (Just kidding. No one else was available to do the crappy job.).
I have so many stories from this, and other experiences, that I drafted a movie treatment. I need to get it to film one day.
