Liver Transplant Program and Referral Information

With more than 13,000 people in the United States with end-stage liver disease awaiting a liver transplant, UCSF has made liver transplantation services a high priority. Since 1988, UCSF has transplanted more than 4,000 livers, and has concurrently developed innovative procedures to expand the number of eligible recipients. Because the need is so great, UCSF’s Liver Transplant Program has a focus on living donor liver transplants and encourages prospective recipients to seek a living donor whenever possible.
