Liver Transplant

Quality Outcomes

The Emory Transplant Center is proud to share with you the continued excellent outcomes of our Liver Transplant Program. For calendar year 2014, the Emory team performed a total of 154 adult liver transplants. Of the patients added to the wait list in 2014, nearly half (41%) received a transplant within two months of listing. Over half (55%) of those listed were transplanted within four months of listing.

  • Emory’s risk adjusted one year patient and graft survival rates for liver transplant remain higher than the expected rates at 93.83% and 91.73%. Our three-year patient and graft survival rates also exceed the expected rates at 85.07% and 81.71%.*

  • We are also proud to report that the Emory Transplant Center as a whole ranked 7th among transplant programs across the nation based on adult transplant volume. This was derived from the 441 adult transplants performed by Emory Transplant Center in CY14.
  • Our experience coupled with continued excellent outcomes among all solid organ programs makes the Emory Transplant Center a leading transplant center in the southeast and in the nation.
