The Division of Transplant Surgery is pleased to introduce two new faculty members.
Elizabeth Pomfret, MD, PhD, is our new Division Chief. An internationally recognized leader in living-donor liver transplantation, Dr. Pomfret comes to us from the Boston area, where she served as Chair of the Department of Transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center.
The Division is also proud to welcome Dr. Pomfret’s husband, James Pomposelli, MD, PhD, to our faculty. With deep experience in multi-organ transplant, Dr. Pomposelli has particular clinical expertise and research interest in the liver.
In bringing this accomplished couple from Massachusetts to Colorado, the CU Department of Surgery has gained the two most experienced living-donor transplant surgeons in the United States. Between the two of them, Drs. Pomfret and Pomposelli have performed nearly 300 living-donor organ transplants (and counting).
