This book is a tribute to the world’s first successful lung transplants. Dr. Todd assisted in the first successful lung transplant in the world in November of 1983. Dr. Todd was 38 and the youngest member of a dream team of surgeons at Toronto General Hospital that included Dr. Griff Pearson, Dr. Joel Cooper, Dr. Mel Goldberg, Dr. Alec Patterson and Dr. Bob Ginsberg. These were the innovators who established the legacy of thoracic surgery and lung transplantation that has earned Toronto General Hospital a reputation as one of the world's leading transplant and research centers. BREATHLESS, A Transplant Surgeon's Journal is an invaluable book for anyone interested in the history of lung transplantation.
I can highly recommend Dr. Thomas’ book for your personal reading or as a great gift at a very reasonable price. Purchase at the book signing or order from your bookstore or direct from the publisher (see below).
