    Liver Transplant Directory

    When the liver becomes diseased or injured so that it cannot function properly, you may consider a liver transplant. Some conditions that can harm the liver include hepatitis, cirrhosis, alcoholism, liver cancer, and Wilson's disease. When your doctor determines you need a transplant, you will be put on a waiting list. You may receive a liver from a living or a deceased donor. After transplant surgery, you will need to use careful follow-up care to reduce the risk of organ rejection or infection. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how liver transplants work, who may need a liver transplant, what to expect, and much more.
