Liver Transplant

Liver Transplant Procedure

Once a patient has been accepted as a candidate for a liver transplant, his or her waiting time can vary widely depending on blood group, the urgency of the medical condition and the unpredictability of the gift of a suitable liver donor.

The Liver Transplant Operation and Post-Transplant Care

Liver transplants as quick as five to six hours are not infrequent with current improvement in surgical technique and avoidance of veno-venous bypass.

A speedy discharge is possible mainly because of a dedicated transplant intensive care unit with a full-time transplant/critical care specialist who manages the patients 24 hours a day, along with a committed team of transplant trained specialists in every transplant-related field of medicine.

Liver transplant patients are referred to us from across the US, especially from surrounding states including: Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Missouri, Nebraska and Louisiana.
