Fall 2018


Fall 2018 issue of SurgeOn, the Department of Surgery's newsletterBrowse our latest issue, featuring some of the latest research and innovations, including the division of Research’s roadmap that will lead our efforts into the next era of surgical innovation, significant NIH funding in the Wang Lab, and leading-edge approaches to surgical care that reduces hospital stays and increases patient satisfaction.

We highlight the important work of the South Carolina Surgical Quality Collaborative (SCSQC) and thank Dr. Mark Lockett for leading the charge for MUSC. The SCSQC is one of a few statewide collaboratives in the country and it is paving the way to provide quality improvement initiatives throughout the state, improving surgical outcomes with reduced costs to South Carolinians.

Also in this issue, we recognize the significance of 50 years of kidney transplantation, highlighting  the continued innovation, beginning with the first surgery in 1968. The MUSC kidney transplant program now ranks as the tenth largest kidney transplant program in the nation. 

We celebrated the remarkable career of Dr. David B. Adams during an evening filled with heartfelt tributes, much laughter and expressions of gratitude.
