Apple Inc. co-founder and Chief Executive Steve Jobs has an "excellent prognosis," a doctor at a Tennessee hospital said, confirming that Jobs had a liver transplant there.
"He received a liver transplant because he was . . . the sickest patient on the waiting list at the time a donor organ became available," said James D. Eason, chief of transplantation at Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute in Memphis. "Mr. Jobs is now recovering well and has an excellent prognosis."
