Our clinical program expertise includes adult living donor transplantation, expanded donor criteria, treatment of recurrent hepatitis C, liver resections, and minimally invasive complex biliary surgery. We were the first institution to offer fully laparoscopic living liver donation and we also have among the highest success rates and the shortest wait time for liver transplants in the country.
Our approach always seeks to provide patients the least invasive treatment with the best results. Patients receive comprehensive care from a team of specialists — including hepatologists, liver transplant specialists, gastroenterologists, hepatobiliary surgeons, diagnostic and pathology experts, advanced-care nurses, social workers, and patient support staff — who work collaboratively to ensure that they receive the best treatment possible.
We also have a deep commitment to clinical innovation, which is made possible by a dynamic partnership between our physicians and academic researchers.
