Some patients benefit from having a combined or "dual" organ transplant, meaning they receive a new liver and another new organ during the same surgical procedure. Stanford faculty surgeons have expertise performing the following types of combined organ transplants with excellent outcomes:
Liver and kidney transplant
Liver and heart transplant
Liver and intestine transplant
Liver and lung transplant
If you are suffering from serious illness and multiple organ failure, your transplant team may recommend a combined organ transplant to help restore your quality of life. Patients requiring combined organ transplantation are listed on both organ waiting lists. Waiting time to transplantation will vary depending on the organs you need.
Post transplant care is similar to single-organ transplantation in that you will need to take anti-rejection medications for the life of your organs.
