Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My goal is to extend the benefits of organ transplant to greater numbers of patients while maintaining Stanford's excellent outcomes. We have set up a protocol to treat morbidly obese patients, who normally would not qualify for kidney transplant, with bariatric surgery prior to kidney transplantation. We are also developing the "paired-organ exchange" program at Stanford to increase the chances that patients with willing but incompatible living donors can still receive a living donor kidney.
