University Hospital and Medical Center has recently reorganized its Transplantation Services with a view toward current and future expansion. In preparation for potential expansion in the areas of gastrointestinal and cardiothoracic transplantation, a program in solid organ transplantation has been established in the Surgical Hospital under the direction of John J. Ricotta, MD, professor and chairman of surgery, and Wayne C. Waltzer, MD, professor of surgery/professor and chairman of urology. The only program of its kind on Long Island, it includes kidney transplantation now under the direction of Dr. Waltzer, and plans for programs in pancreas, heart and lung transplantation which are currently under development.
