The Center for Advanced Liver Diseases and Transplant opened in 1989 and is the first liver transplant center in New Jersey. It is noteworthy to mention, since its opening, the Center has performed more than 1600 liver transplants. Recently, the United States made lifesaving history by reaching 1 million organ transplants. As a member of the United Network of Organ Transplants, University Hospital is proud to have played a part in this historic milestone.

Our team consists of a designated group of surgeons, hepatologists, physician assistants, nurse coordinators, patient navigators, social workers, financial coordinators, pharmacist, and nutritionists. Nurse coordinators play an important role as the daily, direct and personal liaison between the medical team and the patient.
In addition, the Center offers cutting edge-research, with multiple novel treatments including advanced technology and devices. A dedicated inpatient unit provides standardized advanced liver disease management, 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 social workers at the Center.
