We performed the first liver transplant in Ohio in 1985 and have since performed more than 700 liver transplants.
Why choose Ohio State?
We are experts in treating hepatocellular carcinoma and in preparing these patients for liver transplantation. We are one of only 41 comprehensive cancer centers in the nation, as designated by the National Cancer Institute. In collaboration with the OSUCCC – James, our team of surgical oncologists, interventional radiologists, transplant surgeons, transplant hepatologists and medical oncologists offers unparalleled care for this disease.
Our Comprehensive Transplant Center has one of the largest organ transplant programs in the nation. We perform nearly 250 kidney, liver, pancreas, combined kidney/pancreas, heart, lung and bone marrow transplants each year. Since our program started in 1967, we have performed more than 8,000 lifesaving transplants.
We are a member of the Acute Liver Failure Study Group, a collaborative network of 28 hospitals that have studied more than 2,000 cases of acute liver failure. Current trials include phase II and phase III investigations of medications to treat hepatitis C, new treatment approaches for treating decompensated liver disease and emerging therapeutic options for both hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma.
