Since opening in 1988, Sutter’s Liver Disease and Transplant Center at California Pacific Medical Center has performed more than 1,600 liver transplants. We see patients at CPMC in San Francisco in addition to 12 regional offices across Sutter’s network in Northern California.
Data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) demonstrate that our program outcomes are among the nation’s best. In fact, our program produced the singular achievement announced by the SRTR in 2014 as the only transplant center in the country to achieve better-than-average outcomes in both liver and kidney transplant programs for one-month, one-year and three-year outcomes. At CPMC, 97.4 percent of liver patients survived one year after transplant compared to the 89.3 percent expected survival rate.
The most recent data released from the SRTR gave Sutter’s transplant program the longest-running record of statistically better-than-expected patient survival rates in all four measured categories: one-year and three-year patient survival rates with deceased-donor organs; and one-year and three-year organ graft survival rates from deceased donors.
Our outcomes reflect the excellence and commitment of our transplant teams, who are at the forefront of clinical research and surgical innovation.
Our medical staff provides the personal care and support you need, walking you through each stage of liver liver disease management and transplantation.
Liver Transplant Evaluation
Candidates for liver transplant undergo a comprehensive two-to-three-day liver transplant evaluation that will determine if a transplant is needed and feasible through blood work, imaging studies and heart tests.
Liver Transplant Surgery
Liver transplant surgery is performed at California Pacific Medical Center, where transplant care teams work with precision and the utmost attention to quality and detail.
Post Liver Transplant Care
After your liver transplant, our post transplant care team will get you up on your feet and back to a full and active life by providing the support, education and monitoring you need.
