50th Anniversary: First Human Heart Transplant

On December 3, 1967, Professor Christiaan (Chris) Barnard performed the World's first human heart transplant at Groote Schuur Hospital. That procedure, described by Barnard as "not that great an event - certainly not in the history of medicine" continues to attract public and professional interest half a century later.
