Allegheny General Hospital added a third transplant surgeon to join its growing transplant program, officials announced Thursday.

Dr. Akhtar S. Khan comes from the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, where he was director of the kidney and pancreas transplant program and assistant professor of surgery at Penn State College of Medicine since 2005.

Prior to that, he was an attending transplant surgeon at the University of Pittsburgh's Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute.

Khan will join the abdominal transplant surgical team of Drs. Ngoc Thai and Kusum Tom. The hospital has been a center for organ transplantation since 1987 and began performing liver transplants in November 2007.
