Life saving organ transplantation has become common medical practice, but for transplant recipients, it’s anything but routine. Tuesday, we’ll talk about how patients become eligible for transplants and how the process works for donors and recipients. As part of ideastream's series Lifegiving Transplant Stories The Sound of Ideas will also look at the costs: What will insurance cover? Does your ability to pay factor into whether you get the transplant? Please join us, Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. on 90.3.

Dr. Kenneth McCurry, cardiac surgeon, Cleveland Clinic
