THE EXCHANGE WITH DR. DONALD MORTON
Donald Lee Morton was an American oncologist who was best known for developing sentinel lymph node evaluation, a procedure that, by some estimates, saves the U.S. healthcare system nearly $4 billion annually in the treatment of melanoma and breast cancer. At the time of his death, he was Chief of the Melanoma Program at the John Wayne Cancer Institute in Santa Monica, California. He published in excess of 600 articles in peer reviewed journals and received funding for his research from the National Institutes of Health for 35 years. As Director of the John Wayne Cancer Institute's Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program, Dr. Morton trained more than 100 postdoctoral fellows, most of whom hold academic positions in medical schools or cancer institutes.
