Our Survival Outcomes

Emory Transplant Center is committed to providing excellent clinical outcomes and delivering outstanding service and medical care to our patients. To fulfill our commitment, we recognize the importance of setting specific goals and prioritizing activities that are aligned with our mission and objectives, that are driven by data and best practices.

National Ranking

  • We are proud to announce that Emory Transplant Center ranks in the top 10 overall among transplant programs across the nation based on our 2016 adult transplant volumes.


  • In 2016, we performed a total of 146 adult liver transplants. Emory Liver Transplant Program ranks #2 among the liver transplant centers nationally by patient survival and volume combined. On a local level, our program ranks #1 in the state of Georgia.

Quality Outcomes

  • The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) performs assessments of transplant outcomes every 6 months by looking at the survival rates of patients who underwent transplant over a 2.5 year period. The table below shows assessments of how often patients are alive with a functioning transplanted organ 1 year after transplant.
