Featured Case Studies

UPMC Complex Care Connect™ : Living-Donor Liver Transplant

Partnering with hospitals that have deceased liver transplant programs, UPMC works with a partner hospital to provide living-donor liver transplant as an option for difficult cases and where a living donor may be a better patient option. The patient undergoes pre and post-operative care at the partner hospital and comes to UPMC for the surgical procedure and associated care. UPMC is consistently one of the country’s leading centers for living-donor liver transplants forged on the legacy of the "transplant pioneer," Dr. Thomas Starzl.

UPMC Patient Connect: Concussion Treatment

UPMC is a clinical leader in the evaluation, treatment, and research of concussion. UPMC experts identified six unique concussion clinical trajectories each with its own diagnostic and treatment pathway. In many cases, a patient would have more than one of these concussion sub groupings, making treatment a highly personalized experience for the patient. UPMC is on the leading edge of using vestibular, exercise, and other therapies in the treatment and cure of concussion.
