They generally incinerate them, as there are a number of ethical questions regarding human tissue.

You lose an organ and it's sometimes autopsied, then incinerated. Usually, it's just incinerated. And sometimes, it goes to the good people in medical research (I get human tonsils and thymuses, for example) and they use it, then discard it as a biohazard.

watch out for snack attacks then. My husband ate the precious sugar frangipanis I had saved from my wedding cake
I have all my internal squishy organ bits although one of these days I really am gonna cough up a lung.
My daughter-in-law has to have her appendix out asap. She's been on a waiting list for ages , so it MUST be soon.
I did have my wisdom teeth out under gruesome circumstances...but survived the ordeal, older and "wiser".
My son had to have a back molar removed on Tuesday. He was told he has a robust jaw and long curly wurly roots. It was the young dentists very first day of work and he got the honour of doing the surgery after hours. He couldn't get all the pieces out and had to get one of the older, stronger more experienced dentists to help him. A "first day on the job" he'll long remember.

For a girl who goes all ewwwwwwwwwy when operations come on TV...I quite enjoy talking and hearing about them :hmmm:
nurse...scalpel
