National Leaders in Liver Transplantation

Our USC Living-Donor Liver Program has been a pioneer for more than 20 years. Our internationally recognized surgeons combine decades of experience with innovative treatment options, including bloodless transplants.

We offer a complete approach to transplant patient care. Our surgeons stay involved in all aspects of treatment, from the first evaluation through care and support after surgery. Our mission is to help patients get off the wait list and make transplants available to more people.

For those who want to improve their health for a donation, Donate Well is a personalized 8-week program that offers support from dietitians, lifestyle therapists and personal trainers.
