In Memoriam, Dmitriy A. Nikitin, MD (1970-2011)

Сегодня пришла совершенно дикая новость по рассылке Американского общества хирургов-трансплантологов.

Некий хирург-трансплантолог по имени Дмитрий Никитин был застрелен своим же пациентом в гараже клиники.  Потом пациент убил себя.

Бедный Никитин был врачом из Омска.

Утром ты приходишь на работу и вечером тебя отстреливают в гараже твои же пациенты.

In Memoriam, Dmitriy A. Nikitin, MD (1970-2011)

The American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) is shocked and deeply saddened to learn about the shooting death of Dr. Dmitriy A. Nikitin, an ASTS member and promising young transplant surgeon.

Details are limited at this time, but ASTS has learned that Dr. Nikitin was shot and killed by one of his patients in the hospital parking garage Thursday. The patient then turned the gun on himself.


Dr. Nikitin specialized in multi-organ abdominal transplantation at the Florida Hospital Transplant Center in Orlando.
He was also an assistant professor at the University of Central Florida's College of Medicine
. He completed his Transplantation Surgery Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas and his General Surgery Residency at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dr. Nikitin participated in ASTS’ first Surgical Fellows Symposium in Hawaii in 2007. He completed his Residency in Anesthesia and Intensive Care in Omsk, Russia.

Dr. Nikitin was honored in 2007 with the Young Investigator Award for his presentation at the International Liver Transplant Society 13th Annual Internal Congress on "15-year Follow-up of Aortohepatic Conduits in Liver Transplantation."  In the summer of 2010, he and his fellow transplant surgeons, dubbed “The Dream Team” set a Florida Hospital record for the most number of transplants ever done in a weekend.  His special interests include liver, kidney, pancreas and intestinal transplantation; clinical aspects of islet cell transplantation; laparoscopic donor nephrectomy; hepato-biliary surgery; and the application of microsurgical techniques in transplantation.

Dr. Nikitin leaves behind his wife and children. Our hearts go out to his family, friends, colleagues, and patients during this tremendously difficult time.
