Untitled[edit]

It is not clear to me from this article at which institutions the subject worked. As there is no cross-link for the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, where the subject carried out his famous transplantation, it would be good to know where this hospital is located. And did the subject hold a post there? What, and for what period? Shulgi 13:53, 23 December 2006 (UTC) 23 December 2006, 14:50.


The page is full of formatting errors, unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with wikipedia to correct, but am hoping that someone is watching this page.LawrenceWoodman (talk) 14:02, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for the heads up. Gareth Jones (talk) 14:22, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

The hospital where he performed the ground-breaking surgery[edit]

This website:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-20506475

informs that he died at the same hospital as the hospital where he had performed ground-breaking surgery many years earlier, i.e. a kidney transplant between identical twins. The article should mention that he died in the hospital where he performed the first organ transplant - I have tried to insert that into the article myself.
