Innovation in transplantation

Alexis Carrel was really the next innovator in transplantation and he was awarded the 1912 Nobel prize for his work on the anastomosis of blood vessels that ultimately allowed us to transplant organs, in that we could hook up the vascular veins and arteries.
Seen here he is demonstrating this to a class of surgeons. We still use his techniques today in the operating room when we are transplantation organs.
