Liver Transplant Program

The liver transplant program at Penn is one of the top 10 programs in the country, and one of the few programs that integrates clinical and basic science research along side superb patient care. Patients are initially evaluated by a multidisciplinary team that includes surgery, hepatology, cardiology and psychiatry at the time of evaluation. They are carefully followed while on the waiting list with management of all the complexities of end stage liver disease.

At the time of transplantation, the patients are cared for on the transplant surgery service in cooperation with our medical consultants. Innovative clinical programs include adult living donor liver transplantation, expanded donor criteria, treatment of recurrent hepatitis C, transplantation for malignancy, and split liver transplantation. Liver resections and complex biliary surgery is also performed by the liver transplant service. The liver program is part of the Penn Transplant Center and is also combined with the program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
