Organ transplant: 'Eessential' surgery in a time of pandemic
from Medpage Today
Recent guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recommended limiting all nonessential planned surgeries and procedures until further notice, but identified transplants as Tier 3b procedures that should not be postponed if possible.
