• Liver Transplant

    The liver transplant program at UK Transplant Center treats patients with end-stage liver disease and liver tumors. Our team of surgeons, nurse practitioners and nurse coordinators, hepatologists, pharmacists and social workers partner in providing personalized transplant care before, during and after surgery. 

    When treating patients with liver tumors, our transplant team works closely with the oncologists and surgeons at UK Markey Cancer Center to ensure the special needs of these patients are met. Additionally, we offer the most advanced treatment available for patients with hepatitis C (Hep C) who are in need of a liver transplant.  

    The first liver transplant at UK took place in 1995; since then, our surgeons have performed more than 700 transplants at UK Transplant Center, using state-of-the-art technology and leading-edge medical and surgical interventions to provide the best possible treatment in a caring and compassionate environment.
