Livingston, NJ – In response to an ever-increasing need for kidney and pancreas transplant
surgeries and the program's continuous growth, the
Barnabas Health Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division recently welcomed new transplant surgeon, Samantha H. Aitchison, MD.
Dr. Aitchison joins Stuart R. Geffner, MD, and Harry Sun, MD, with Associates
in Transplant and General Surgery. Together, they specialize in kidney
and pancreas transplantation, dialysis access, as well as general and
advanced laparoscopic surgery.
Prior to joining the Division, Dr. Aitchison was an attending surgeon at
the Birmingham Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Birmingham, AL, while
performing her fellowship in abdominal transplant surgery at the University
of Alabama at Birmingham. She completed a residency in general surgery
at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, and received a medical degree
from the State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY. She is
board certified in surgery and has presented her original research at
both international and national conventions.
The world-class Barnabas Health Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division,
located at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ, is one of
the world's most progressive transplant programs. Performing more
than 250 transplants each year, it is one of the largest kidney transplant
programs in the United States - ranking third highest in living donor
transplant volume. The Division is the most active kidney transplant program
in New Jersey and the only program in the state involved in multiple clinical
research trials and NIH funded trials for patients.
