The Liver Transplant Program was established in mid-1991 at the Regional Transplant Center. Liver transplantation is available for patients with end stage liver disease due to many different medical conditions.
Willis-Knighton is the first hospital in north Louisiana to offer cryosurgical treatment of liver tumors. This technically advanced procedure can be an effective treatment for otherwise unresectable primary and metastatic liver tumors and is performed by our transplant surgeons.
The Liver Transplantation program utilizes the same multi-disciplinary team approach in patient evaluation, treatment and follow-up care as that of the kidney and pancreas transplant programs.
