50th Anniversary of dialysis for ESRD
|Posted by ANT on Jul 24 2010|
50 years ago in Seattle the first patient started dialysis with the deliberate intention of keeping him alive despite end stage renal failure. More in the history of nephrology blog. He survived 11 years, but a patient who joined him in 1963 received a medal in Seattle last month. Robin Eady later became a doctor and professor of Dermatology. Article from the Seattle Times.
He is second from the right in the front row of this photo from the Royal Free 'lucky 13' in 1965. There is more about him on edren here.
