Mikhaila and Dr. David Weill discuss logistical problems specific to organ transplant healthcare. He talks to Mikhaila about his growing concerns in the medical field related to the misallocation of resources and the high rate of burnout in transplant doctors. Weill lays out his idea for a more sustainable system that would provide more organs for transplant, and additionally reduce rates of burnout in doctors while improving the level of surgical care rendered to transplant patients.
Dr. David Wiell is an organ transplant specialist, family & provider advocate, healthcare consultant, and author. He recently wrote a book Exhale that describes life in transplant surgery and critiques many of the logistical issues with the current system implemented in US healthcare.
