The Living Donor Liver Transplantation Program at NewYork-Presbyterian has performed more than 300 living donor liver transplantations since its inception, including a higher volume of the less invasive, left lobe donations than any other living donor liver program in North America. New York Presbyterian is the only transplant center in the United States performing fully laparoscopic donor hepatectomies. This technique markedly reduces donor recovery time. As pioneers in laparoscopic liver removal, the Center continues research in techniques to make the surgery less invasive and safer for the donor, including removing less of the liver by using the left lobe for transplantation rather than the traditional right lobe. The enormous clinical benefits of left lobe living donor liver transplantation to donors include shorter length of stay, reduced morbidity, accelerated recovery, and improved quality of life.
