Video: Burn Patient Saved by Tissue Donation

February 28, 2013
by

Our colleagues at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre have posted a great video of a patient and his journey after a propane explosion in December 2006.

Ralph Walker was brought to Sunnybrook’s Ross Tilley Burn Centre, the only burn centre in Ontario with a donor skin bank, where the first of many surgeries took place. He says he is only alive today thanks to the multiple skin grafts from donors that allowed his body the time it needed to heal.

The Blood and Tissue Bank at Sunnybrook is part of their Division of Laboratory Medicine, which is a major partner with the Laboratory Medicine Program here at UHN. It’s valuable to see and learn about the great work that our partner sites are doing for patient care.

Take a look!

    Hello there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying
    to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Many thanks!
