As the first hospital in Broward County to perform liver transplants in 2004, our liver transplant program strives to provide excellent outcomes and dedicated service to patients suffering from end-stage liver disease. Transplantation involves surgically replacing the diseased organ with a healthy, new liver, with the goal of restoring liver function.
The procedure is considered for individuals with the following conditions:
• Alcoholic cirrhosis
• Cancerous tumors of the liver or bile duct
• Drug-induced liver injury
• Noncancerous tumors of the liver
• Problems with the major blood vessels that supply the liver
• Acute liver failure
• Viral hepatitis
Liver Cancer and Hepatobiliary Surgery
In addition to liver transplant services, the South Florida Transplant Center’s team of physicians is dedicated to caring for patients suffering from liver cancer. The team offers a multi-modal approach, which includes the use of radiofrequency ablation, trans-arterial chemo-embolization, and laparoscopic liver resection.
Complex hepatobiliary surgery cases, such as biliary reconstruction after bile duct injury and liver resections for benign and malignant disease, are also part of the surgical team’s expertise.
