How Death Becomes Life: Notes from a Transplant Surgeon

Author(s): Joshua Mezrich


Gripping and evocative, How Death Becomes Life takes us inside the operating room and presents the stark dilemmas that transplant surgeons must face daily: How much risk should a healthy person be allowed to take to save someone she loves? Should a patient suffering from alcoholism receive a healthy liver?

The human story behind the most exceptional medicine of our time and it is a poignant reminder that a life lost can also offer the hope of a new beginning. Leading transplant surgeon Dr Joshua Mezrich creates life from loss, moving organs from one body to another.

In this intimate, profoundly moving work, he examines more than one hundred years of remarkable medical breakthroughs, connecting this fascinating history with the stories of his own patients.
