University Transplant provides a variety of follow-up care and recommendations for patients receiving a donated liver. Our follow-up team helps patients maintain their health and enjoy a renewed way of life.
In the first few months after transplantation, patients return to University Transplant for frequent checkups. We'll review the medications that must be taken to prevent rejection of the new liver, monitor the new liver's function, address any symptoms, and answer any questions. We also work closely with each patient's local physician(s) who will play an active role in recovery.
