Storyline

Three Rivers is about the lives of organ donors, the doctors, and recipients of the organs at Three Rivers, a preeminent transplant hospital in Pittsburgh. Dr. Andy Yablonski is the leader of the team of surgeons: Dr. Miranda Foster, a woman with a reputation of being a rebel and who strives to live up to her father's legacy; Dr. David Lee, the surgeon that breaks all the ladies' hearts; Ryan Abbott, the inexperienced new transplant coordinator with a complex new way of transferring organs to the patients; Dr. Sophia Jordan, the head of organ surgery, and Pam Acosta, Dr. Andy Yablonski's operating assistant and best friend. These are the stories of organ surgeons and what it's like to be in a race against the clock to save lives. Written by Anonymous

Organ procurement not entirely correct here
4 July 2011 | by ucaiiiSee all my reviews

Oh, I like this show very much. I am a fan of hospital shows and like to see how modern medicine can cure people. I like it that it that it does not revolve around the animal sex drives of the doctors and hospital staff like Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice.

I do however disagree with how they represent the way organs are procured.

First of all, organs are very rarely every procured as fast as they portray and also the donor and recipient NEVER know each other.

How do I know this? I had cornea transplants in 1980 and 1982. I had to wait 6 months for a donor on the 1st eye and 5 months on the 2nd almost loosing my eyesight both times.

I was NEVER told who my donors were. A party to introduce donor families and recipients??? No way! Simply unheard of and illegal, at least in my state.

I have been president of the board of directors for my state eye bank and on that board for 4 years. I even do on Pony Express runs getting donated eyes to people who need them in a hurry and they will not even let ME find out who my donors were, even after all these years.

I have NO access to the list. Today, I see 20/30 and 20/25 thanks to my donors.

Love the show, just not entirely realistic in some areas.
