​​​Liver Transplant Surgery​

The transplant team will contact the patient to come to the hospital when a suitable donor is located. Liver transplant surgery is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes between 5 and 8 hours. Following surgery, the patient is transported to the transplant intensive care unit (ICU) where they will begin the recovery process for the next 24-48 hours. From the transplant intensive care unit, the patient continues recovery and receives comprehensive care on the transplant nursing floor.​
