Email

Two patients at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison are recovering, after they received Wisconsin's first domino transplant.

In a 12-hour operation this week, Joe Stoikes of Madison received a matching liver from a deceased donor and Stoikes' liver was then given to Eino Ahlgren of Waukesha. Both men are doing well.

Stoikes is expected to go home today, and Ahlgren could be released during the weekend.
