UTMB Health's Medicare-approved Liver Transplant program was
established in 2008. The program recently recruited Dr. Jeffery Fair to
lead the program. The Texas Transplant Center offers patient centered
services and outstanding communication with patients and referring
physicians. Our program has the specialized surgical expertise, advanced
imaging technology and leading research that you would expect from a
top academic medical center.
Our services include:
- Liver transplantation
- Management of chronic liver disease, cirrhosis and liver failure
- Hepatobiliary Services
This brief 4 minute video will provide patients with basic information about the liver, what the liver does when it is functioning normally, and will review liver disease. It will cover some of the causes of liver disease and symptoms patients typically have. It will discuss why and at what point some patients may be referred to the UTMB transplant center for liver transplantation.
