Liver Transplant Surgery

Step Three: Receiving Your New Liver

During liver transplantation, your diseased liver is removed and replaced by all or part of a donor liver. Because liver transplant surgery is a complex procedure, you need a highly experienced transplant team. Duke’s outcomes, including one-year liver survival rate, are consistently among the best in the nation. This is the case even though we accept very sick people into our program.
