The Emory Liver Transplant Program is known and respected nationwide. Our experts include liver transplant surgeons, transplant hepatologists, gastroenterologists, anesthesiologists, pathologists, radiologists, and nurses. Your entire care team is experienced in treating liver failure. Our mission is to provide our patients with the unsurpassed, comprehensive care they deserve.
When the liver stops working correctly, it cannot detoxify the blood and store nutrients. Sometimes liver disease can be managed with medications. When medications aren’t enough, Emory has surgical and nonsurgical treatment options. Our treatment options include:
- Liver resection (removing a diseased part of the liver)
- Liver blood test (ERCP)
- Shrinking the size of tumors on the liver (radiofrequency ablation)
- Radiation oncology
- Liver transplants
Our cutting-edge research in liver transplantation also provides our patients with treatments available at only a few centers around the country. These include liver transplantation in HIV-positive patients and patients with cancer of the bile ducts.
