SINOPSIS

Donald Morton was a truly amazing man: a remarkable scientist and an outstanding, inspirational surgical oncologist. For those of us who had the great fortune to know him personally, it was an experience that we will always remember with warmth and gratitude. Hundreds of thousands, possibly millions, of patients in the future will also be grateful to him when they benefit from his original but simple idea that has so dramatically improved the surgical approach to patients with cancers that may metastasize to regional lymph nodes: the sentinel lymph node biopsy concept.
