Read More About Dr. Lo

Soon after Elizabeth Woodcock was born, a test showed abnormally high bilirubin levels in her blood. When a liver biopsy suggested biliary atresia, Dr. Lo surgically removed the damaged bile ducts as part of a Kasai procedure. Today, Elizabeth is doing well and may never need a liver transplant.
