Liver transplant field's most prominent book honors SA program

February 2004

Terasaki's Clinical Transplantation 2003, an internationally-known book featuring the premier transplant programs in the world, recognized the Health Science Center's liver transplant program in its latest edition. Terasaki's invited program director Glenn A. Halff, M.D., professor and interim chairman of the department of surgery, to write an invited chapter. Typically only two to three prominent international liver transplant centers are featured each year.

Since 2000, more than 400 individuals with severe liver disease have received life-enhancing liver transplants performed by faculty surgeons of the Health Science Center. The program is offered in conjunction with the outstanding clinical staff and facilities of the University Health System. The program was ranked ninth in volume among 118 active centers in 2002. This year, for the fourth straight year, the team has performed more than 100 liver transplants.
