She received her medical degree from University of Alabama School of Medicine and completed her surgical residency and a two-year research fellowship at the University of Wisconsin.  Following residency, Dr. Niederhaus completed two years of sub-specialty training in abdominal transplantation, also at the University of Wisconsin.

Dr. Niederhaus specializes in kidney and pancreas transplantation, laparoscopic and single-port donor nephrectomy, and liver transplantation. Dr. Niederhaus has a number of papers and abstracts published, many centering on organ transplants and organ donors and recipients. Dr. Niederhaus received a kidney transplant herself more than 20 years ago and therefore brings a unique perspective to the field of transplantation and immunosuppression management.
