Mayo Clinic's approach

  • Teamwork. At Mayo Clinic, a team of surgeons, doctors, transplant nurses, pharmacists, social workers and other health professionals take care of you before, during and after transplant. They provide quality care focused on the needs of you and your family.
  • Coordinated care. Having all of this subspecialized expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — your care is discussed among the team, your test results are available quickly, appointments are scheduled in coordination, and your transplant care team works together to determine what's best for you.
  • Experience. As a three-site institution, Mayo Clinic has one of the largest liver transplant programs in the United States. Its liver transplant team is recognized nationally and internationally for its expertise in comprehensive specialty treatment for people with serious liver conditions.
  • Advanced technology. The innovations and technology of Mayo Clinic's liver transplant team make transplants available to more people. Our doctors and surgeons offer specialized procedures available at only a small number of institutions. These services include heart-liver transplants, treatment for bile duct cancer, and treatment for obese patients who need liver transplant with weight-loss surgery (sleeve gastrectomy).
  • Research. Researchers at Mayo Clinic are actively engaged in developing new technologies, treatments and techniques to make transplants safer and available to more people. For example, Mayo Clinic researchers study how to limit immune system rejection after liver transplant and how to use cell therapies to improve outcomes.

    At Mayo Clinic, you may have access to ongoing clinical trials, research and new treatments.
