Utah's premier liver transplant program - Intermountain Liver Transplant at Intermountain Medical Center - began in 1986 at LDS Hospital. We began as the 14th center in America and the second center in the West. To date, well over 700 liver transplants have been performed, including living-related, deceased donor, and split liver transplantation.
Nationally more than 18,000 patients are listed for liver transplant. Intermountain Medical Center averages 40 to 45 liver transplants each year with 93 percent survival rate for the first year.
In addition to liver failure, we specialize in all diseases of the liver and bile ducts. Areas of expertise include primary and metastatic tumors of the liver, bile duct problems, portal hypertension, liver cysts, and all types of hepatitis. Our affiliation with the Liver-Pancreas Center provides state-of-the-art care for these difficult problems.
The goal at Intermountain Medical Center is to restore quality of life to patients with advanced liver disease.
