Just five years after transplant surgeons from UHealth - the University of Miami Health System saved the life of a Texas infant at Holtz Children'Hospital, a rare congenital disease brought that family back to South Florida. This time, so UHealth transplant surgeons could save the life of their son. Liam was placed on the transplant list and brought via air ambulance from Texas to Holtz Children's. On February 23, Liam successfully underwent a 9-hour transplant surgery, receiving eight new organs: a liver, stomach, large and small bowel, pancreas, two kidneys, and bladder.
