On May 6th, 2021, the Liver Transplant Program at Westchester Medical Center is very proud to have Dr. Rifat Latifi, the Chairman of Surgery at Westchester Medical Center, deliver a live CME webinar titled "Complex Abdominal Wall Reconstruction for Hernias in Cirrhotic and Post-transplant Patients."
