Education About Living-Donor Liver Transplant?
Living-donor liver transplant presents a viable alternative to the liver transplant waiting list, with improved outcomes compared with deceased-donor liver transplants. Living-donor liver transplants offer potentially life-saving benefits that include:
- Little or no wait time
- Improved long-term outcomes
- Quicker recovery time
At UPMC, we believe in the life-saving power of living donation, so we discuss living-donor liver transplant with every patient we evaluate.
