Improving the Quality of Life

A successful liver transplant can offer patients with liver disease a return to a full and active lifestyle for many years to come. Usually, they will be free of the weakness, fatigue, confusion and lack of appetite that plagued them prior to the transplant. The transplant team at Hahnemann University Hospital is committed to providing the benefits of liver transplantation to all appropriate patients interested in exploring this option.

Our goal is to assist patients through the evaluation process, get them placed on the national waitlist and then complete transplantation in the shortest possible time with the best possible outcome.

We take pride in the excellent service we provide. Physicians and staff communicate directly with you and there is always a member of the transplant team on-call for after hour concerns.
