Liver Transplants: Mayo Clinic Radio

By Joel Streed

In this Mayo Clinic Radio episode,  Julie Heimbach, M.D., and Charles Rosen, M.D., join us to talk about dramatic changes happening in the world of liver transplants. For instance, it wasn’t long ago that patients with hepatitis B, hepatitis C or a certain type of tumor would not have been eligible for a liver transplant. That's no longer true.  We’ll also discuss a fairly novel approach to patients with obesity-related liver disease, which is to combine liver transplant with bariatric surgery. Obesity is one of the fastest growing reasons for needing a liver transplant. We hope you’ll join us.

Here's the podcast: Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 12-6-14
