Liver Transplant


UCLA is home to one of the world's leading liver transplantation programs. Over the past 30 years, we've performed more than 6,000 transplants for infants, children and adults. Patients come to us from across the U.S. because we have a reputation for taking on rare, complex cases that other centers decline to treat. We not only specialize in the latest surgical techniques available today, we helped develop them. Learn more»
