Liver transplant is a life-saving surgical procedure to replace a diseased liver with a healthy liver. Liver transplant is indicated for those patients with chronic liver disease (most commonly from viral hepatitis) and for irreversible acute liver failure.
The first liver transplant was performed in Hawaii in 1993 and since that time, our surgeons and staff have performed more than 300 liver transplants. The liver team works closely with the Queen’s Liver Center to provide patients with continuity of care and long-term management of liver disease with a multi-disciplinary approach.
Please contact your primary care physician or a GI/liver specialist for referral to one of our transplant surgeons for your initial consultation if you have liver disease that may require transplant.
