What Sets Us Apart
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.
