Emory performs first triple organ transplant

Wendy Book, MD, associate professor in the Division of Cardiology, is quoted in an Emory News Center article about the first triple organ transplant in Georgia. Patient Stephanie Lindstrom, Book's patient in the Emory Adult Congenital Heart DIsease Program, underwent a heart, liver and kidney transplant following a lifetime battle of congenital heart complications.

"When I first met Stephanie, I immediately knew she was a resilient, strong willed person who was a fighter," Book said in the article. "We knew her heart and liver were in bad shape because of her congenital complications, but problems with her kidney had not yet surfaced."
