LIVER TRANSPLANT PROFESSIONALS

In 1985, the Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Transplant Center became the 16th dedicated liver transplant program in the world. It was the first transplant program in Missouri to perform a successful liver transplant.

Each person on the liver transplant team is an expert in a specific area of transplantation. Together, they bring their expertise, knowledge and understanding to each patient in our program.
