    Marc L. Melcher

    Associate Professor of Surgery (Abdominal Transplantation) at the Stanford University Medical Center

    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.

    Dr. John Magaa Morton

    Associate Professor of Surgery (General Surgery) at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My main research interests include the surgical management of the morbidly obese, evidence-based surgery, and surgical education. Prior training in public health, health administration, and surgery provide a strong foundation from which to pursue these goals.
    The only effective and enduring treatment for morbid obesity is bariatric surgery. Like the previous public health epidemics of cancer and heart disease, surgery is the first responder to the obesity crisis.
