» Doctors of Donation
We often say that it takes a village to facilitate the organ donation process from recovery to transplantation. When an individual meets medical criteria for organ donation, and in collaboration with their family, the first steps in the donation process can begin. The Lifebanc care team medically manages that patient until the recovery is complete. The care team consists of critical care professionals, social workers, and physicians who work together to ensure that the precious gifts of life are viable for transplant and as successful as possible for the recipients.
In honor of Doctor’s Day today, we spent time with one of our three esteemed physicians who serve as medical directors at Lifebanc. Doctor Samir Latifi, Associate Medical Director, practices Pediatric Critical Care at Cleveland Clinic and discusses his donation background and role with Lifebanc.
