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.


Our Doctor's Access Line is easy and convenient to use. Physicians can reach one centralized resource, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
