Care Philosophy

After being involved in organ transplantation for infants and children for over 30 years, I have two main operating principles. First, I think that the answer to most medical and related questions about a patient tends literally to lie with the patient at the bedside. Second, in the care of children with complex digestive problems and transplants, parents and other loved ones must be welcomed as key members of the healthcare team, participating in both the making of the decisions and the carrying-out of plans.Read more
