Just three months after performing a successful kidney transplant, South African cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr Christiaan Neethling Barnard , became an international superstar virtually overnight when he performed the first successful human to human heart transplant in Today, tens of thousands of grateful individuals have received this life-saving surgery; moreover, the majority of heart transplant patients have gone on to enjoy many years of life after the completion of the operation, including its subsequent medical treatment.

This could probably be attributed to the relationship that Barnard established with a pioneering researcher, Norman Shumway.

Shumway is generally seen as a key figure in the story of the first heart transplant as Barnard essentially implemented the techniques and procedures researched by Shumway. Upon his return, the burgeoning superstar was appointed the cardiothoracic surgeon at Groote Schuur Hospital, as well as becoming a full time lecturer at UCT and Director of Surgical Research at the University.

Preceding the heart transplant surgery, Barnard built a reputation as a brilliant researcher and surgeon, and was promoted within university hierarchy on several occasions. Barnard authored several books during his life, including two autobiographies and numerous other texts concerning medicine, and married three times.

Despite some controversy with regards to his personal, romantic life, he remained a well-respected personality in South Africa both before the end of Apartheid and after the transition to democracy, and, without doubt, will always be an iconic figure: Dr Barnard proved that South African skill and talent is among the best in the world, and that the country has the resources to be a world leader in the field of medicine.
