Internationally acclaimed local surgeon Dr. John S. Najarian M.D. will discuss his book The Miracle of Transplantation: The Unique Odyssey of a Pioneer Transplant Surgeon on Wednesday, March 10 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis.

Najarian, University of Minnesota professor and former Chairman of Surgery at the University of Minnesota Hospitals, developed one of the world’s largest transplant programs. The Miracle of Transplantation is a unique memoir of his exciting, trail-blazing career through his stories and personal reflections.
