New Pediatric Liver Transplant Service
Aubree Vanzant, 10, is the first patient to receive a transplanted liver in the new pediatric liver transplant program at Vanderbilt. Diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis, the Maryville resident underwent a 12-hour surgery to remove her liver to replace it with a healthy, deceased donor liver on June 25, 2015.
