For more than 15 years, the experts at the Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation have been providing some of the most advanced, yet personalized, care to individuals affected by liver disease.

The center, run by Weill Cornell Medicine — in partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian, New York’s top hospital for 17 years running, and Columbia University — is internationally renowned for its expertise and excellence in living donor transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery in patients of all ages. 

We have one of the highest success rates and the shortest wait times for liver transplants in New York state and nationwide. And with one of the highest liver transplantation volumes in the country, we not only perform these procedures regularly, but are also familiar with the various scenarios that can present themselves in the operating room. 

The centers surgical expertise, experience and resources also allow us to transplant patients who would normally be denied elsewhere. We are among the few programs nationwide that provides transplantation as an option for patients co-infected with Hepatitis C or HIV as well as those with cancer of the bile ducts.  

Patients may also be able to participate in clinical trials at Weill Cornell Medicine, giving them access to new therapies that might not be available at other medical institutions.

At the Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation, we favor a collaborative approach to patient care, which allows us to personalize each of our patients’ treatments. Working with each person under our care, the center’s highly experienced clinical team — made up more than 100 specialists and staff from multiple disciplines — strive every day to provide seamless and compassionate treatment.
