Since its inception in the 1990s, the Division of Abdominal Transplantation remains one of the highest-volume programs in the United States. The surgical team has performed more than 2,300 liver transplants and 2,500 kidney transplants with outcomes that significantly exceed UNOS expectations. The pediatric liver transplant program is the largest in the country. Notably the faculty has performed many firsts in the Texas Medical Center: in-situ-split adult-pediatric liver transplant, adult-adult split liver transplant and adult living donor liver transplant.
As a core element of our multidisciplinary Transplant Institute, the division offers patients access to clinical trials of the latest diagnostic tests and therapies through the Advanced Liver Therapies Research Center.
