Dr. Gerald Brandacher (Scientific Director, Reconstructive Transplant Program) and Dr. Jeffrey Kahn (Director, Berman Institute of Bioethics) will discuss the ethics of transplants for donors, patients, and their families. In addition, they will discuss Dr. Brandacher’s medical team’s successful penis and scrotum transplant and ethics of transplanting gene-generating tissue such as testicles. Finally, as medicine progresses to allow us to transplant more organs, Dr. Brandacher and Dr. Kahn will examine future ethical topics, such as uterus transplants.
