Johnny C. Hong, MD, FACS, is professor of surgery and holds the inaugural Mark B. Adams Chair in Surgery at The Medical College of Wisconsin. Additionally, he serves as Director of the Solid Organ Transplantation Program, a joint program of Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Froedtert Hospital with vital support by the Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin. Prior to joining MCW in 2012, Dr. Hong served on the surgical faculty at the University of California (UCLA) David Geffen School of Medicine, Division of Liver and Pancreas Transplantation (2005-2012). At UCLA, he served as Director of the Multi-Organ Transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery Fellowship Program, Director of Living Donor Liver Transplantation Program, and Director of Liver and Pancreas Transplantation Service.

Dr. Hong is a highly-accomplished and innovative clinician and researcher. His clinical expertise encompasses the entire spectrum of liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery for adults and children. His laboratory research has focused on development of new treatments in organ resuscitation to mitigate the adverse effects of ischemia and reperfusion injury. The goal of his research is to convert otherwise discarded marginal organs to transplantable livers, in the hopes of decreasing the number of patient deaths while on the transplant waitlist.

Dr. Hong serves on the editorial boards or as a reviewer for many prestigious journals. He is an active member of major national and international surgical and transplantation societies. He also has held key Organ Procurement and Transplantation (OPTN)/ United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) committee and regional review board positions.
