The Liver Transplant program is one of fewer than 100 in the U.S. to earn certification from both Medicare and Medicaid, which is the highest quality indicator for a transplant program.
For the last three years, the liver transplant program has consistently attained the best liver transplant patient survival outcomes among all liver transplant centers in Texas.
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
We are approved by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), Medicare and Medicaid.
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.
We provide care for primary and metastatic liver tumors with multiple therapies: radiofrequency ablation, radioactive microspheres, chemo-embolization, chemotherapy, liver resection and transplantation.
