Waiting for a liver transplant can be stressful, for you and for the people who care about you. The liver transplant team at Rush understands the needs and concerns of patients awaiting transplants — and has a team to support you before, during and after your surgery.
The transplant team includes surgeons and hepatologists, who work together to address every aspect of your care. Experienced nurses will work with your physicians to coordinate your care before the transplant and for several months afterward.
Other team members are on hand to answer your questions about medications, diet and insurance. They'll also help you get the support you need to handle day-to-day and long-term needs related to your transplant.
