I'm so happy to be a patient at UCSF. They are so innovative and this is a perfect example of that.
Yes they do but that truly was a stupid thing to do. If someone is hiv-positive don't let them transplant to anybody else, even if the recipient is hiv-positive already
Makes me uncomfortable. All those working in surgery are more exposed to this now. Sounds like a money thing to me too. Are insurance companies willing to cover this? Not sure how this make an hiv + patient that more healthy.

I don't know how this helps an HIV pt. Seems more like a way to make money. Any transplant pt has to take immunosuppressant drugs making them more prone to infections. HIV mutates, so mixing HIV strains can make antivirals resistant to stopping copies of HIV from multiplying taking over the immune system developing aids.
Way to go DR PETER STOCK. Congratulations and God bless you. And Thank you again, six months ago you did the kidney transplant for my daugther Hannah. And she's doing fantastic. Again and Again Thank you for your Amazingly Touch and Thnx to all UCSF ❤❤🙏🙏
Omg! I worked with a patient that went through an HIV+2HIV+ transplant with ucsf! I was so happy for them!They had made some poor decisions early on in their life giving them hep c and HIV. They were not a horrible "dirty" person. A wonderful, amazing person who did a lot of good in their life. At the age of 50 they finally got their second chance in life and a new organ! Truly a blessing.
Not only a trail blazer in transplant surgery, but has such varied interests that make him an overall great role model. The fact he helped save our sons life is a major plus as well. Also want to note when it comes to successful transplant surgery it takes a fine tuned TEAM <3 to make it a success. :-)
Great job! I'm sure that this will safe lots of lives and make the donors loved ones feel proud and happy that their family member will still be alive in sharing their organs.
An innovator, advanced thinker in the transplant world, the best there is! As well as caring &'compassionate. Need I say more about the surgeon who gave me a second chance ? Thank you & forever grateful!
