I’m one of the transplant surgeons. I do kidney, pancreas and liver transplants — mostly kidney and pancreas transplants.
The biggest changes in transplant that you see ongoing is the changes in the immunosuppression — the antirejection medications that we give. They’re continually evolving, continually improving. And you see outcomes continuing to improve because of that. The frequency that we see rejection has certainly gone down dramatically in the last 20 or 30 years. And the side effect profile of the medications is so much better than it used to be.
One of the misconceptions that people get — probably from TV — about transplant is that you have a transplant surgery, you get a kidney, you go home from the hospital and that’s the end of the show. In reality taking care of the kidney, or any organ, is really a critical part of the transplant process. And so we’re very involved in that. So we see the patients quite a lot after transplant as well.
