Transplant Head Honcho forced to dismount

The Abdominal Transplant Program, beset with administrative problems, experienced another upheaval. In a recent statement, The UCSD communicated its decision to relieve // Dr. Hart, the Director of the program for liver and kidney transplants, of his administrative responsibilities. Notwithstanding, Dr Hart will still continue as a full-time surgeon and member of the University's transplant team.

The UC San Diego, disappointed with the manner in which Dr Marquis Hart had conducted the UC Irvine’s Liver program, perceived to have misled organ officials, instigated his exit. Dr Marquis Hart had been offering part time services to the UCI since 2002 till the fall of 2005. During his tenure, The UCI liver program suffered huge setbacks prompting its closure.

Federal officials said that though the UCI was given 122 livers between 2004 and 2005, only 12 transplantations had occurred, a record low for any such program in the state. The UCI also did not have its own team of surgeons and therefore had to avail the services of Marquis and another UCSD surgeon. Further, Medicare also decided to cancel the payment for UCI’s Liver transplants.

Dr Hart was also part of a contract that allowed him to be a consultant surgeon for the UCI. The financial contract, according to Dr Thomas MacAfee, was between the UC Irvine and The UCSD Department of Surgery, and confirmed that the UCSD was not in the eye of any mischief or allegations. In the UCSD statement, the Chief Executive Officer, Richard Liekweg has reiterated that this is not a slur on the Doctor’s skill and commitment to his work. Infact, Dr Hart is regarded as an outstanding surgeon, deeply committed to his patients.
