February 2014 Meeting
Dr. Vivian Tellis MD, Director Emeritus of the Montefiore Hospital Transplant Program and Professor of Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine was the guest speaker at the Long Island TRIO February General Meeting.
Dr. Tellis provided a presentation of the best practices with respect to kidney transplantation. He focussed on what criteria and care contributes to the very best potential renal transplant patient and graft survival.
Dr. Tellis discussed many of the myths that somehow are spread around and perpetuated with regard to transplantation.
Dr. Tellis fielded many questions from the audience and was indeed a wonderful resource full of important information and experience that he was generous enough to share with the group.
We look forward to having Dr. Tellis back once again at a future meeting.
