Medical love story: A Texas couple both had liver transplants. Now she helps others as a transplant surgeon.
Houston Chronicle, December 29, 2022
Dr. Trine Engebretsen was born with a genetic condition that caused her to need a liver transplant when she was 2 years old. She later married Ryan Labbe, a fellow liver transplant recipient, and they are believed to be the first pair of liver transplant recipients to have children together. Today Engebretsen is an abdominal transplant surgeon at the University of Texas Medical Branch.
