What Sets Us Apart

High-Risk & Extended-Criteria Transplants

Our level of experience allows us to accept high-risk transplant candidates who might be turned down at other centers because of certain preexisting comorbitities. Our program also specializes in the use of extended-criteria deceased donors, offering transplant candidates liver grafts that might otherwise not be available.

Advanced Medicine

We are committed to offering the widest range of services, therapies, and options to our patients with liver disease. We deliver an unrivaled transfer of cutting-edge technology directly to patient care. And our patients have access to promising clinical research and trials.
