Transplant surgery and live liver donation
Transplant surgery, kidney donation and exchange
Organ transplantation is remarkable. It is
lifesaving and life changing. It also is a highly technical, meticulous, sophisticated
medical procedure that requires extraordinary skill and expertise. Your
decision to choose Lahey Hospital & Medical Center for your liver or kidney
transplant is a significant one.
Hospital & Medical Center (LH&MC) is a renowned leader in transplant
medicine and surgery. Our program supports kidney and liver transplant patients who receive
organs from both live and deceased donors.
transplant services stand apart:
Hospital & Medical Center has some of the best transplant outcomes in the
United States, according to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients.
Over the last decade, we have had the lowest mortality rate of patients
on the waiting list to receive a liver or kidney – and we also have some of the
sickest patients in the country. This is a measure of the excellent care we provide for each patient who comes through our doors.
to our success:
Hospital & Medical Center is proud to have the most experienced liver
transplant team in New England. Together, our surgeons have completed the largest number of transplants and liver resections in the region and have well over 100 years of combined clinical experience. All members of the team are also experienced kidney transplant practitioners.
The expertise of our clinicians is matched by
their true compassion. When a patient comes to us for a transplant, they don’t
just “belong” to a single doctor. They benefit from a team approach focused on
consultation and collaboration, on education and support, and on a continuity
of care that is second to none.
