Biography

When transplant surgeon Dr. George Mazariegos began working with children, it didn’t take long for him to recognize that he had found his calling.

As director of pediatric transplantation at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, Dr. Mazariegos specializes in liver and intestinal transplantation.
