On Wednesday, January 30, 2019, Triangle Business Journal unveiled the 23 winners of its 2019 Health Care Heroes Awards. The Department of Surgery is proud to announce that our very own Dr. Chirag Desai was among this years winners.

Dr. Chirag Desai, Surgical Director of the Liver Transplant Program, Director of the Chronic Pancreatitis & Autologous-Islet Cell Transplant Program and Associate Professor of Surgery was named one of the 23 winners of the Triangle Business Journal 2019 Health Care Heroes.

This year’s winners were chosen from a pool of nominees whose applications were submitted online for consideration. The winners include doctors, nurses, volunteers and administrators.

These winners hail from all three corners of the Triangle and work in a variety of health care settings, including major hospital systems, small physician groups, nursing schools and health care-related technology companies.

Profiles of these winners will be published as part of a special section in the March 15 issue of TBJ.

Congratulations to Dr. Desai on his much-deserved win.
