Robert Montgomery has resumed performing surgery after receiving a heart transplant from a donor with hepatitis C. But his journey back hasn’t been without complications.
Robert Montgomery was performing his first kidney transplant as the lead surgeon since his own heart transplant in September of 2018.
A wonderful moment happened Friday at St. Thomas Hospital.
A mother, her daughters’ donated heart and the grateful woman who received that heart all came together.
The moment was 18 months in the making. Joni Layner received the heart of Nancy McLellan’s daughter, Tiffani.
“I am so honored to meet you, it’s such a pleasure to meet and know you’ve got my angels heart in you,” Layner said.
