Heart & Kidney Transplant: Kenneth's Story
Kenneth Woodka encountered many obstacles when he looked for a hospital for his transplant surgery. He visited six hospitals hoping to be accepted for transplant surgery -- only to be turned down by every one because he was deemed to be too high risk. Not wanting to give up, Kenneth turned to the University of Chicago Medicine, an internationally known center for multi-organ transplant surgery. Thankfully, the University of Chicago's experienced transplant team was able to give Kenneth the life-saving heart-kidney transplant surgery he needed so he could get back to enjoying life with his family and friends.
