Experts in Liver Transplants

Stanford Hospital's Liver Transplant Program began in 1991 as part of the Multi-Organ Transplant Program. Since then, our team has performed more than 800 adult liver transplantations, consistently exceeding national patient and liver survival rates at the one- and three-year marks after transplantation.

Our Doctors

Care and Treatment

Pioneering New Therapies for Liver Disease

Along with providing quality care to our patients, our expert clinicians at Stanford Hospital's Liver Transplant Program actively research cutting-edge treatment programs that will help improve the lives of our patients.

Building on a long history of innovation, our team at Stanford is revolutionizing transplantation with ongoing advances in immunology and clinical immunosuppression. We are committed to new developments that minimize side effects of long-term immunosuppression and safely increase the opportunity for transplant.

Your transplant surgeons and physicians are constantly looking for better ways to help patients. You can be a part of this process by agreeing to participate in a clinical trial. Ask your surgeon or hepatologist if there are any trials currently open for which you may qualify.

You can also visit Stanford's Institute for Immunity Transplantation and Infection which aims to understand and ultimately control how the immune system defends the body at the molecular and cellular levels.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Hospital & Clinics patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

For Patients

Your doctor will request an evaluation by one of Stanford's transplant specialists, who will review your previous medical records and determine if additional tests are necessary. Patients undergoing initial evaluation, medical follow-up before transplant, and post-transplant follow-up, both early and late, are seen in the liver transplant clinic.
