Weill Cornell Medicine's liver transplantation, hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery program offers adults and children with liver disease a combination of medical, surgical and radiologic expertise.
When surgery is indicated, we have a renowned team of hepatobiliary surgeons who collaborate and review the individual treatment course for each patient and treat diseases using minimally invasive procedures leading to quicker recoveries and less pain.
Advanced Liver Transplantation, Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Surgery at New York’s #1 Hospital 18 years running
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.
Through this collaboration, we offer a Liver Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer Multidisciplinary Clinic Program where a variety of care team members and physicians are available to see you via video conference on the same day in coordinated appointments. The program's Access Nurse will help you navigate your care and can also connect you with supportive services as needed. You can call our office to learn more about this program.
We also have a deep commitment to clinical innovation, which is made possible by a dynamic partnership between our physicians and academic researchers.
