Update on Senate President Martin M. Looney

The Office of Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) today announced that the Senator underwent successful kidney transplant surgery at Yale New Haven Hospital.

Senator Looney and his family would like to extend their deepest thanks to his volunteer donor, Judge Brian Fischer for this extraordinarily generous act and the doctors, nurses and team at the Yale New Haven Transplantation Center.

Senator Looney has lived with Ankylosing Spondylitis, since he was a teenager. This form of arthritis affects the neck and spine. A long-term side effect of taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories to treat this condition is kidney problems.

Every year, it is estimated that more than 120,000 Americans are in need of a kidney transplant. People who are interested in learning more about the living donation option contact the Yale-New Haven Transplantation Center at 866-925-3897. A transplant coordinator will share more information about living kidney donations, including details about blood work and evaluations, risk factors, the donor surgical experience and recovery process.
