'Live' Kidney Transplant Surgery Program Educates Students.

08/01/2014

NJTV's Life & Living goes inside the operation room to learn about and witness a live kidney transplant surgery performed by Dr. Stuart Geffner, Director, Department of Transplant Surgery, Barnabas Health, during the program LIVE from Liberty Science Center.

The segment focuses on why this procedure is so critically important and how the shortage of organs in New Jersey has left thousands on waiting lists for this 'life-saving' miracle.

Liberty Science Center, NJ Sharing Network and Barnabas Health formed a partnership to broadcast live transplant surgery. The goal of the program is to enhance transplant education and increase knowledge and awareness of NJ Sharing Network and the importance of organ donation.
