Liver Transplant

Our course for caring for your liver transplantation is based on your individual needs that are determined from numerous assessments and consultations leading up to the transplant procedure. With over 750 liver transplants performed, our team strives to provide the best quality of care.

The Liver Transplant Team at Jewish Hospital includes transplant surgeons, hepatologists, transplant coordinators, psychiatrists, social workers, nutritionists, financial coordinators, medical consultants and administrators who work closely with the operating room, critical care and medical-surgical units at Jewish Hospital.

Most patients qualifying for a liver transplant suffer from some form of liver cancer, often caused by cirrhosis and Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC). However, liver failure can also result from other diseases or, in rare cases, certain types of medications.

Patients accepted as liver transplant candidates are listed with Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA), as well as nationally with the United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS).

Contact Jewish Hospital Transplant Care via email or for transplant referral information, call 1.800.866.7539 and follow the organ-specific telephone prompts.
