Liver Transplant Program Highlights

Dedicated Services for Liver Failure & Liver Transplant

Emory University Hospital is the only place in the state of Georgia that provides an intensive care unit and service line dedicated to liver failure and liver transplant.

Forefront of Liver Transplant Research

Emory Transplant Center is at the forefront of cutting-edge research in liver transplantation, offering treatments that are only available at a few transplant centers around the country. These novel treatments include liver transplantation in HIV-positive patients and patients with cholangiocarcinoma, cancer of the bile ducts.

Offering a Bridge to Transplant

Emory Transplant Center is the only center in the Southeast to offer extracorporeal liver support with the Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System (MARS®), a viable option for treating select patients with acute liver failure that can be used either as a bridge to transplant or for spontaneous recovery.
