"I am a liver, kidney, and pancreas transplant surgeon. I enjoy giving patients the opportunity to receive the gift of life. I also direct the living kidney donor program which allows amazing people to give life to love ones, friends, and community members. I am actively involved in improving the care of transplant patients through work with the United Network for Organ Sharing and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons." — David A. Axelrod
