More than 1,400 lives are lost every year in America because there simply aren’t enough livers for everyone who needs one. A living donor removes the recipient from the transplant waiting list, which helps others. Liver donor transplants save lives faster. Ochsner is home to the only living liver program in Louisiana.
What Is a Living Donor Liver Transplant?
A living donor liver transplant is a transplant using part of a living person’s liver.
At the Ochsner Multi-Organ Transplant Institute, we encourage patients and their families to consider living donor liver transplantation. It truly is the gift of life.
