The liver is incredibly resilient, with great ability to repair and replace itself. But severe liver disease and/or acute liver failure may harm this organ beyond self-restoration, leaving a liver transplant as the only option. We specialize in two types of liver disease surgeries:
Deceased donors have previously opted to donate their organs, or their families have made the decision to donate their organs so that someone else will have a chance at life. A deceased donor has been declared brain dead* and has functioning organs suitable for transplant, the acquired liver needs to be transplanted within 24 hours.
*Complete stopping of all function of the brain that cannot be reversed. A brain-dead person is not in a coma, but is, in fact, dead.
Also known as split liver transplant, a partial liver transplant is the division of one deceased donor liver and transplantation in two recipients. The portion of the liver transplanted will regrow and "adjust" to the appropriate size required by the body of the recipient.
We use the latest video-assisted technology to identify the full extent of your condition and offer both traditional and minimally invasive surgical techniques.
When a potential organ becomes available, the clinical coordinator will call you and advise you to come in right away.
The coordinator will give you instructions on what you need to do to prepare for the transplant.
The surgery can take from 2½ to 4 hours, depending on your medical condition and previous surgeries. The expected length of hospital stay for an uncomplicated liver transplant is 5 days.
