Liver transplants in Erasmus MC
We are the largest center for liver transplants in the Netherlands. We are the only center in the country performing transplants in adults with living donor livers. And these results are above average. The more transplants you do as a center, the better you become and the more people on the waiting list can get a new liver.
Within our Transplant Institute, a specialized team performs liver transplants. Liver physicians, transplant surgeons, the anesthesia team and the OR-staff all work together extremely well.
‘Donors give others new life. Without that new organ, a patient dies. Whether the donor has died, or is still alive: he or she passes on life. I find that such a beautiful fact!'
In the future we want to further improve the technical possibilities, perform more living liver donations, and provide patients with good guidance in their lifestyle before and after surgery for better results. Deaths on the waiting list must be reduced, because we find that unacceptable.
