PHOENIX—Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix, Arizona, has been identified as having the highest one-year patient survival rate in the U.S. for adult liver transplantation. The statistics include both deceased and living-donor liver transplants. These statistics indicate that 98.52 percent of all patients are living one year following their liver transplant – best in the nation. This compares with the national average of 90.83 percent. Mayo also leads the nation in three-year living donor liver transplant patient and graft (the organ) survival. The one-year patient survival rate for living donor liver transplant is 100 percent, and the three-year patient survival is highest in the nation at 96.3 percent.

On Saturday, December 6, at 9 a.m. CT, Julie Heimbach, M.D., and Charles Rosen, M.D., will 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. Myth or Matter of Fact: I have a history of medical illness. I would not be a suitable donor.
