Emory Transplant Center has great news to share about our Liver Transplant Program. The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) just released their January 2017 program specific reports. In this latest release, when comparing adult liver transplant centers across the nation by volume and outcomes (survival at 1 year with a functioning graft), Emory is now ranked SECOND NATIONALLY, bested only by the University of California San Francisco (UCSF).
Below is a portion of a graph that shows the top three ranked adult liver transplant centers by volume with an outcome score of ‘5’, meaning better than expected survival (survival at 1 year with a functioning graft). It is sorted from best to worst.
