Referral Process

At the Emory Transplant Center, we have multiple specialty clinics to care for patients with liver disease. Once your referral is processed, a liver transplant consultation will be scheduled with a transplant hepatologist. 

Patients who do not qualify for transplantation at the time of referral may be given the opportunity to fulfill eligibility criteria and undergo reevaluation at a later time.
