The Division of Transplantation Surgery supports
the first liver transplant center in New Jersey,
one of the busiest in the nation. Offering expertise
in treating adult patients with liver failure
requiring liver transplantation, the Division
also provides comprehensive multi disciplinary
team management of other complex hepatobiliary
disorders, such as liver tumors, Hepatitis C,
biliary strictures, and portal hypertension.
The team consists of a designated group of surgeons,
hepatologists, physician assistants, nurse coordinators,
social workers, financial coordinators, and nutritionists.
Nurse coordinators play an important role as the
daily, direct and personal liaison between the
medical team and the patient.
A dedicated in-patient unit provides standardized
pre- and post-transplant care. An active support
group for patients who are awaiting transplant
and who have undergone transplant is also supported
by the Division.
The division also provides follow-up care to
patients transplanted at other centers.
