The Department of Surgery’s Liver Transplantation, Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery program offers adults and children with liver disease a combination of medical, surgical and radiologic expertise.
In partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian — the top hospital in New York for more than 16 years, according to U.S. News and World Report — Weill Cornell Medicine has one of the highest volume programs in the nation.
Our surgeons have unparalleled experience and our program has one of the highest success rates and the shortest wait times for transplants in the United States. Patients at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian are much more likely to receive a liver transplant than at other hospitals in the region.
The living donor liver transplant program at Weill Cornell Medicine is the largest in the Northeast and the only program in the country to offer fully laparoscopic donor hepatectomy. Our cohesive team of medical and surgical experts specializes in liver disease and works together to plan all aspects of your care.
Our surgeons pair this extensive expertise with a patient-centric approach that encourages patients to ask questions about their conditions, procedures and treatment options.
We also have a close collaboration among clinical specialists including hepatologists, gastroenterologists, hepatobiliary surgeons, diagnostic and pathology experts, advanced-care nurses, social workers, and patient support staff affiliated with the program. Through this collaboration, we offer distinct multidisciplinary clinic programs for patients with Liver Cancer or Pancreatic Cancer, held on Thursdays and Fridays respectively. These programs allow for multiple care team members and physicians to see you via video conference on the same day in a coordinated appointment. The multidisciplinary programs will allow for formulation of a comprehensive treatment plan to maximize your care through all of the cancer services important for your malignancy. The program's designated Access Nurse will help you navigate your care and can also connect you with supportive services as needed. You can call our office to learn more about these programs.
In addition to our deep commitment to compassionate personal care, we are also dedicated to clinical innovation.
As active researchers, our physicians are actively developing new and better ways to deliver care and as faculty members of Weill Cornell Medical College, they are also training future generations of liver transplant and hepatobiliary experts.
