The Methodist Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation revolves around close coordination between hepatologists (liver specialists) and the surgeons, nurses, transplant coordinators, dieticians, and other experts on our staff.
Exceptional Staff, Exceptional Resources
Our program distinguishes itself not only through the expertise and experience of our surgeons and hepatologists, but also through the skill and dedication of a large, multidisciplinary team that works with our patients, including:
And with the leading-edge resources of the Methodist Transplant Program behind us, we’re able to treat patients in some of the most highly advanced surgical and outpatient facilities available.
The surgeons of the Methodist Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation perform a wide range of liver transplant surgeries, including whole-organ, living-donor and split-liver transplants. The latter two procedures, both rare and complex, represent life-saving options that help to set our Center apart from transplant programs at other hospitals.
Our physicians and scientists are actively involved in researching new forms of immunosuppression (suppression of the body’s immune responses to prevent rejection of the transplant), strategies for reducing complications, and new ways to fight post-operative infection. This research includes projects underway in the laboratory as well as clinical trials that can represent new experimental treatments for qualifying patients.
