Specialists at the University of Minnesota Medical Center’s Liver Clinic have a national reputation in the treatment of liver diseases in adults, including liver failure. If your treatment involves a liver transplant, you will receive excellent care at Transplant Services, which began providing organ transplants in 1963. Since its founding, our surgeons have performed more than 1,400 liver transplants. We also have one of the most successful living-donor liver programs in the United States. The most important advantage of a living-donor transplant is a shorter wait time to receive an organ. About 18,000 people, including children, are currently on the deceased-donor waiting list.
University of Minnesota Health providers offer the full range of care, from diagnosis and treatment to transplantation, clinical trials and follow-up. Our multidisciplinary approach to your treatment, coupled with leading-edge research, results in superior outcomes.
