University of Cincinnati Health creates living donor liver transplant program
from Becker's Hospital Review
University of Cincinnati Health has launched a living organ donor program for liver transplants. Living donor liver transplant involves a surgical team removing part of the liver of a donor who is alive and transplanting it into a patient who needs a new liver. The remaining part of the liver in the donor and the transplanted part of the liver in the recipient grow to normal size within two months, allowing long-term liver function for both the donor and the recipient. This highly specialized surgery is performed at only 61 transplant centers in the U.S.
