Division of Transplantation & Advanced Hepatobiliary Surgery

Transplantation is the definitive therapy for people with end-stage failure of the liver or kidneys and for selected patients with early onset diabetes. Nearly 115,000 people are currently registered on the national waiting list to receive a donated organ.

Three transplant surgeons work closely with medical specialists, nurse coordinators, pharmacists, social workers, and specialists who are committed to excellence in transplant care. The surgeons work at three sites on the University Campus to optimize availability and access. They perform adult liver, kidney, and pancreas transplants at the University Hospital, and pediatric liver and kidney transplants at Primary Children’s Medical Center. In addition, they perform hepatobiliary surgery at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital.
