Mayo Clinic doctors' experience and integrated team approach result in transplant outcomes that compare favorably with national averages. Teams work with transplant recipients before, during and after surgery to ensure the greatest likelihood of superior results.
Volumes and statistics are maintained separately for each Mayo Clinic location. Taken together or separately, transplant patients at Mayo Clinic enjoy excellent results.
A total of 122 liver transplants, including 2 living-donor transplants, were performed at Mayo Clinic in Arizona in 2017. More than 1,000 have been performed since the program began in 1999.
A total of 164 liver transplants were performed at Mayo Clinic in Florida in 2017. Mayo Clinic in Florida has performed more than 3,200 liver transplants in people ages 15 and older, since its program began in 1998.
Mayo Clinic in Florida has one of the shortest wait times to transplant of all adult liver transplant programs in the country.
Surgeons at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota performed 120 liver transplants in 2017, including 24 living donor liver transplants. More than 2,900 transplants have been performed in children and adults since the program began in 1985.
