The multidisciplinary Liver Transplant Clinic, directed by Dr. Robert Fontana, schedules appointments every Monday and Friday morning, as well as every Tuesday afternoon, in the Taubman Center at University Hospital. The Clinic faculty provide medical evaluation and consultation for adults with acute or chronic liver failure to help determine the etiology, stage, and optimal treatment plan. Newly referred patients should have all medical records, x-rays, and pathology reports sent to the transplant coordinator prior to the appointment. During the visit, new patients are seen by a multidisciplinary team including a hepatologist, transplant surgeon, transplant social worker, and nurse coordinator. Patients with advanced liver disease or cirrhosis with the following features are suitable referrals for this clinic:
In addition to new patient referrals, patients on the liver transplant waiting list and liver transplant recipients are also seen in the subspecialty clinics for ongoing care. Participation in research protocols involving newer immunosuppressant regimens, antiviral drugs, and renal outcomes in liver transplant candidates and recipients is available.
