Immigrants Of The Week: Tomoaki Kato, Sergey Brin, and Neil Gaiman

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: TOMOAKI KATO - SURGEON

Many Americans are today learning who Tomoaki Kato, MD is. The Japanese born surgeon and professor at NewYork Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center in New York performed one of the more amazing surgeries about which I've ever heard. He removed six organs - the stomach, spleen, pancreas, liver, large and small intestine - from a young girl, then extracted a baseball-sized tumor, and then put the organs back in the girl's body. The surgery happened about a month ago and today the little girl is doing very well. Kato performed a similar surgery on a 62 year old woman in Florida. Kato is the first surgeon in the world to perform such a surgery, according to news reports.
