Many patients with advanced liver disease cannot survive the long wait times required for a liver transplant. However, Stanford Health Care’s Liver Transplant Program offers living donor liver transplants, which allow healthy family members and friends to donate a portion of their liver. In this video, Dr. Tami Daugherty, Dr. C. Andrew Bonham, and Dr. Carlos O. Esquivel discuss the many benefits of living donor liver transplants. Advantages include reduced wait times and improved survival rates for patients, as well as the opportunity for donors to help their loved ones in deeply meaningful way.
