“The Nature and Treatment of Human Suffering”
Dr. Brescia is Senior Vice-President and Executive Medical Director of Calvary Hospital in Bronx, New York. He is internationally famous for the invention of the AV Fistula which has saved the lives of many with renal disease. While at the peak of his career in organ transplantation and in response to euthanasia and assisted suicide, he surrendered economic fortunes to develop and create a hospital exclusively devoted to terminal cancer patients. Dr. Brescia has played an integral role in establishing the pioneering and unparalleled care for patients at the end of life
