The Liver Disease and Transplant team serving patients at Methodist Specialty and Transplant Hospital is recognized nationally for exceptional outcomes in liver transplantation.
On a percentage basis, more medically-urgent transplants are performed here than at any other program in Texas (based on patient MELD scores).
This is the only liver disease center in Central and South Texas to offer new and innovative treatment for primary liver cancer patients when neither resective surgical procedures nor transplantation are a viable option.
Our integrated liver transplant program offers specialized care for complicated cases of hepatitis B and C, associated liver cancers and liver failure. Our experienced board-certified transplant hepatologists and transplant and hepato-pancreato-biliary surgeons apply the latest medical and surgical innovations to the treatment of liver diseases.
The unique Liver Tumor Consortium at Texas Transplant Institute was created out of a need to provide organized support for liver cancer. The multidisciplinary team includes transplant surgeons, general surgeons with special interest in solid organ tumors, interventional radiologists and oncologists.
