Live Donor Liver Transplant Program
The Leeds Teaching Hospitals offers both adult to adult and adult to child live donor liver transplantation as an option for those patients who need a transplant.
What we do
The aim of live donor liver transplantation is to transplant a recipient at an early stage of their liver failure using a portion of liver from a living donor that has been carefully evaluated as an appropriate match.
By transplanting patients earlier in their disease progression this often prevents them from becoming too sick for liver transplantation and helps in their recovery from major surgery.
