The Rush Approach to Liver Transplant
At Rush, our specialists are highly experienced in the care of complex liver transplants and our patients. They consistently achieve higher than national average one-year liver transplant survival rates of 94%, according to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients.
When you come to Rush, our team will evaluate you for a liver transplant — and we'll provide you with treatment options to help ease your symptoms as you wait for your transplant.
Our team makes both your medical and emotional needs a top priority. We'll work with you and your family to help improve your quality of life before surgery and get back to life after your surgery.
We'll answer your questions about medications, diet and insurance. And we are dedicated to helping you get the support you need to handle the day-to-day and long-term needs related to your transplant.
