Steven D. Colquhoun, MD, professor of clinical surgery, is a renowned expert in transplant surgery, specializing in liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery. When he’s not on the job, he keeps active in a variety of ways, some earthbound and others a bit loftier in nature.

“A few years ago, my wife and I took up running quite a lot — mostly half marathons. We go skiing every year and wakeboarding every summer with our son. Recently, I took up flying. I bought a small airplane in Anchorage and flew it down to Los Angeles.”

He also has interest in wings of another variety. “We built a chicken coop in the backyard as a little father-son project several years ago. Although he’s now off in college, we still have five to six chickens at a time, and they produce about an egg a day. We’re always giving them away!”
