Lifeline of Ohio Enhances Clinical Team to Save More Lives
Lifeline of Ohio is pleased to welcome Dr. Stalin Campos as its first dedicated abdominal recovery surgeon. The addition of an on-staff surgeon will increase Lifeline of Ohio’s ability to honor the decision of Ohioans to save lives through organ donation.
In this newly created role, Dr. Campos will collaborate with Lifeline of Ohio clinical staff in the surgical recovery of organs for transplantation. His background in transplantation will help further strengthen relationships with hospital partners and increase collaborations with transplant surgeons. “I became a transplant surgeon for several reasons, including my interest in complex surgery,” he said. “Transplantation provides patients suffering from organ failure with a second chance at life. And everyone deserves a second chance.”
Dr. Campos completed his residency at Columbia University at Harlem Hospital in New York and his fellowship at the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute at the University of Pittsburgh. He worked as a transplant surgeon at Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia and served as an Associate Professor of Surgery, Abdominal Transplant Surgeon in the Division of Transplantation at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.
In addition to holding medical licenses in several states, Dr. Campos is a long-standing member of the American College of Surgeons, American Society of Transplant Surgeons, and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has published more than two dozen articles and presented to clinical audiences around the world.
“I’m excited about the experience Dr. Campos brings to our team,” said Jennifer Smith, Chief Operations Officer of Lifeline of Ohio. “With his expertise in transplant surgery, he’s able to approach recovery with a deep understanding of the entire donation process and the impact it has on everyone involved.”
“The addition of Dr. Campos demonstrates our commitment to the highest quality of service to donors, their families, recipients and patients waiting in Central and Southeastern Ohio,” said Andrew Mullins, Chief Executive Officer of Lifeline of Ohio. “His extensive background allows for our continued growth as an organ procurement organization. It is a game-changer.”
