Biography

My name Michael F. Daily; I am the Surgical Director of the Adult and Pediatric Kidney Transplant Program and the Pancreas Transplant Program. I am originally from the west, but have been at the University of Kentucky for over 4 years. I graduated from college in Montana at Carroll College. I then went to Graduate School at California State University, Northridge.

I was working for a pharmaceutical company in New Mexico when I applied to Medical School. In medical school at the University of Utah, is when I discovered an interest in Surgery, which led to Transplantation Surgery. My Transplant Surgery Fellowship was at the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute in Pittsburgh. From there I took a job at the University of California, Davis. I moved to Kentucky when the opportunity became available to engage in Transplant Surgery without living in a big city.

My interests include adult and pediatric kidney transplant, pancreas transplant, live donor kidney transplant, dialysis access including peritoneal dialysis catheters, liver masses, and resections.
