Living Liver Donor Transplant Success Story- Christina and Costen Merritt
Costen Merritt donated part of his liver to his mother through the Division of Transplantation's living donor liver program. Christina Merritt was able to be transplanted sooner because of this generous donation from her son. The best donors for living liver donation are family members or close, personal friends of the intended recipient. The transplant surgeons at the University of Maryland are some of the most highly trained living donor liver transplant surgeons in the country.
