Pre- and Post- Adult Liver Transplant Outcomes

Cleveland Clinic has celebrated over 35 years of liver transplantation since completing its first adult liver transplant on November 8, 1984. The liver transplant program is an essential component of a broad medical and surgical strategy to manage all patients with liver disease with the therapy most appropriate to that patient. Moreover, Cleveland Clinic’s Living liver donor program is the only one in Ohio performing both adult and pediatric living-donor liver transplants.

The expected transplant rate is adjusted for age, blood type, medical urgency status, time on wait-list, and previous transplantation.
