Loss of Prof. Rowinski - condolences from Israel


All of us at Israel Society of Transplantation are deeply saddened by the loss of our esteemed colleague, Prof. Wojciech Rowinski, a highly skilled transplant surgeon, pioneer and educator whose work extended and improved the lives of so many of his patients. It was a special privilege for me to have known Wojciech personally and being able to appreciate the many facets of his character and talents. He was not only an accomplished physician, but a truly extraordinary human being and a loving husband and father. I join with my wife Paya in extending our condolences to Prof. Rowinski’s wife and son. To me Prof. Rowinski embodied the Old Testament concept of tikkun olam, meaning that one should live with purpose, to help heal the world. He did that, with joy, wit, and passion. And the world is a little better for it. We shall cherish his blessed memory forever.

 Każdy z nas w Izraelu - Towarzystwa Transplantacji, jest głęboko zasmucony utratą naszego szanownego kolegi,
Wojciecha Rowińskiego, wysoko wykwalifikowanego chirurga, pioniera i pedagoga, którego praca rozszerzyła
i ulepszyła życie tak wielu z jego pacjentów. To było dla mnie zaszczytem, że poznałem Wojciecha osobiście i jestem
w stanie docenić wiele aspektów jego charakteru i uzdolnień. Był nie tylko znakomitym lekarzem, ale naprawdę
niezwykłym człowiekiem i kochającym mężem i ojcem. Łączę się ze swoją żoną Payą w smutku, przesyłając kondolencje
żonie i synowi. Dla mnie prof Rowiński urzeczywistnił koncepcję Starego Testamentu tikkun olam, co oznacza, że powinno
się żyć z celów, aby pomóc uzdrowić świat. Zrobił to, z radości, humoru i pasji. A świat jest trochę lepszy dzięki niemu.
Będziemy pielęgnować jego błogosławioną pamięć na zawsze.

Szanowni Państwo, Koleżanki i Koledzy

Profesor Wojciech Rowiński  nie żyje. Odszedl dzisiaj jeden z wielkich  pionierów polskiej nowoczesnej transplantologii i jej największy orędownik.
Ta strata jest niewyobrażalnie duża  dla chorych czekających na leczenie z nieodwracalnym uszkodzeniem narządów  w Polsce, dla nas transplantologów polskich, dla odpowiedzialnych za ochronę zdrowia w Polsce, ale i  dla całej  opinii społecznej, której tak bardzo zależy na rozwoju polskiej medycyny i transplantologii.

Kochany i Szanowny Profesorze,
Drogi Wojtku,
Pozostawiasz po sobie bardzo wielu Uczniów, Współpracowników, ale i Twoich Przyjaciół, dla których idee transplantacji i darowanego życia są i zawsze pozostaną celem i nadrzędną wartością.
Dlatego łączymy się dzisiaj z Toba i pozostawionymi Bliskimi,
Twoje cale zawodowe życie poświeciłeś dla  transplantologii.

Pozostaniesz trwale w naszej pamięci

Marian Zembala

I am sorry to hear about the death of Professor Rowinski.
Those who have worked with him know how involved (in transplantation in particular, in medicine in general), but also how human he was.
I will remember the nice conversation I had with him in December 2002 in Budapest (final meeting of COORENOR) and I know that our former team colleague Jerica highly appreciated his contribution for the Living donation Working group in 2012.
