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.
