CPD Supt. Eddie Johnson to undergo kidney transplant surgery Wednesday

By Leah Hope and Liz Nagy,

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson will undergo kidney transplant surgery on Wednesday.

“I’ve had 31 years to think about this, so, there is no nervousness, not the least bit of fear,” Johnson said.

The donor is Johnson’s 25-year-old son, Daniel. Johnson plans to spend the evening with his son before their procedures.

“With a living donor kidney transplant, if the kidney works right away recovery is actually pretty quick,” said Dr, Ed Hollinger.

Ed Hollinger will place the healthy kidney into Johnson.
