History of Transplantation

What does this book include?

"This is the first book detailing the history of transplantation in Texas and of the Texas Transplantation Society, in this, the recording of the 28th Annual Scientific Meeting in Austin. It undoubtedly will be followed by more expansive, detailed and researched efforts in the future. This is a humble beginning to tell our state's history in organ transplantation."

This book is set up into 3 sections:
1. History of the Texas Transplantation Society
2. Pictorial recording of the 2015 Scientific Meeting
3. History of transplantation in Texas, as told by the transplant surgeons, physicians, coordinators, and administrators of the centers themselves. Each transplant center was invited to share their 'firsts' and history, as well as information on their current leadership. Roll-up summary graphs of each organ and totals are included at the end of the book, tallying all transplants done in Texas from 1963-2014.
