Clinical Services at Rush What To Expect: Your First Appointment

At Rush, we understand that your time is valuable. That's why we complete most of your liver transplant evaluation in one day. Our goal is to get your work-up finished and place you on the waiting list for your liver transplant as quickly as possible.

On the day you arrive, you will do the following:

  1. Undergo a CT scan of the abdomen
  2. Meet with your pre-transplant nurse coordinator
  3. Meet with your hepatologist
  4. Meet a transplant surgeon
  5. Meet with a pharmicst
  6. Meet with a dietician
  7. Meet with our social worker
  8. Have an echocardiogram of your heart
  9. Undergo a stress test of your heart

We will then determine if any more testing needs to be performed. After testing is complete, your case will be presented to the liver transplant committee.

To ensure your visit goes smoothly, please bring the following with you:

  • Past medical records
  • Prior diagnostic test results
  • Current insurance card
  • Current prescriptions
