I read recently about a transplant surgeon who, himself, was the recipient of a heart transplant. The case is notable, because the heart came from a donor who was known to have hepatitis. This doctor had long advocated that patients be open to receiving hearts from donors that may have the disease. His reasoning was that the risks from the disease could be mitigated and that the flexibility widened the availability of organs that could be used. He was right on both counts and subsequently walked his talk. Refreshing to see an expert that was willing to take their own advice.
