INTEGRIS Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute

Liver Transplant Center

Patients are referred from across the country to the Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute for liver transplants, and are typically evaluated over two or three days. Our tests are designed to assess the patient's need for a liver transplantation and the urgency. The tests include blood tests, imaging tests, evaluation of the heart and lung function along with psycho/social evaluation followed by an extensive interview.

See our full liver transplant referral criteria list.

We accept high risk adult candidates for transplant, including a number of patients who were turned down elsewhere due to the complexity of their disease. The program is Medicare certified.

The adult liver transplant survival rates published by the SRTR in January 2018 are listed in the table below. Information specific to each transplant center is available at www.srtr.org. If you do not have access to the Internet and wish to review any or all of the data available from SRTR, our transplant coordinators will be happy to provide you with a copy at your request.
