Liver and Pancreas Clinical Services
Liver transplantation was introduced as a clinical procedure over 30 years ago. Since that time, the number of liver transplants performed yearly in the United States has increase to an annual rate of well over 4,000.
The development of effective immunosuppressive drugs and the refinement of surgical procedures have led to remarkable improvements in the long-term success of liver transplantation. This procedure is now widely recognized as an effective, and preferred, therapeutic option for the treatment of endstage liver disease.
The liver transplant program at UCLA was inaugurated in 1984 and has grown to be the most active program in the world. Since the programís inception, liver transplants have been performed at UCLA for infants, children and adults, focusing on innovative surgical techniques, advances in immunosuppressive drugs and quality patient care.
As the most experienced liver transplantation program in the western United States, UCLA serves patients from California, Oregon, Washington, and throughout the Southwest, and acts as a tertiary referral center for other transplant programs faced with particularly challenging cases.
The Dumont-Liver Transplant Program at UCLA offers a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of irreversible liver disease, which has fostered excellent results in patient survival and quality of life.
