MAYO CLINIC RADIO

By Dana Sparks

heart transplant surgery with Dr. Daly

Human organ transplantation has come a long way since the first heart transplant in 1967. But despite advances, there are still more than 100,000 people in the U.S. waiting for a donor organ. We'll get an update on the state of organ transplantation from the director of the William J. von Liebig Center for Transplantation and Clinical Regeneration at Mayo Clinic, Dr. Brooks Edwards. We'll also hear from transplant surgeon Dr. Charles Rosen, who led teams that performed five liver transplants in one 24-hour period. Also on the program, springtime allergies are at their peak, and allergy specialist Dr. Rohit Divekar has tips for reducing symptoms. And pediatric surgeon Dr. Christopher Moir explains how to prevent pediatric falls among young children.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: The first organ to be transplanted in a human was a kidney, not a heart.

By Joel Streed

A sudden numbness in your face, difficulty speaking, a severe headache. These are signs and symptoms of a stroke. Each year, nearly 800,000 people in the U.S. have a stroke. May is Stroke Awareness Month and on the next Mayo Clinic Radio, neurologist Dr. Robert Brown, Jr., talks about diagnosis and treatment of stroke. Also on the program, proton beam therapy uses highly focused radiation to treat tumors while reducing damage to surrounding tissue. Radiation oncologist Dr. Robert Foote explains how it works. And we'll have the basics on how to get the most out of sunscreen from dermatologist Dr. Dawn Davis.
