Welcome to the Liver Transplant Program. The Liver Transplant Team at Cleveland Clinic is here to help you regain your health.
Learn about the liver transplant process
We have designed an extensive teaching program to help you learn about the liver transplantation process, and your individual health needs and medical care before and after the transplant.
We know that learning about the liver transplantation process and how to care for your health may be overwhelming at first. But remember, you can learn a little each day. You'll also have this notebook as a reference while you wait for your transplant.
We understand that you are both excited and nervous about your transplant; these are normal reactions. Being prepared in advance by learning and understanding what to expect will help ease your fear of the unknown.
Always discuss your questions and expectations about the liver transplantation with your healthcare providers.
Be an active partner in your healthcare
We believe it is important for you to be an active participant in your health care. You will need to assume a lot of responsibility in your own care by doing whatever is necessary to build and maintain your strength for the liver transplantation.
Another important concern for your long-term health is for you to recognize and report any change in the way you feel; no one knows how you feel except you.
