Making a Referral for a Liver Transplant

We offer life-saving transplants as an effective treatment for liver failure.

If a patient has liver disease, it’s important to be referred for a comprehensive evaluation of his or her condition as soon as possible. A primary care physician, gastroenterologist, or hepatologist (digestive and liver specialists) can refer patients to the Miami Transplant Institute for a liver failure and transplant evaluation. Patients can also contact our team directly to schedule an appointment.

Our transplant team can draw on the comprehensive resources of Jackson Health System to provide multidisciplinary care—an important consideration because patients’ medical condition may affect other organs as well as the liver.

Medical Conditions

Conditions that can cause liver failure and require a life-saving organ transplant include:

  • Acute liver failure
  • Biliary atresia in children
  • Biliary cirrhosis
  • Chronic hepatitis B or C
  • Cirrhosis from alcoholic liver disease or other causes
  • Fatty liver disease (NASH)
  • Some types of liver cancers
  • Metabolic genetic disorders
  • Complex portal thrombosis

Most patients with liver problems have other medical problems and can benefit from a comprehensive evaluation. Our multidisciplinary transplant team receives referrals at every stage of the disease, including patients with liver failure who have been admitted to hospital intensive care units (ICUs). We have the ability to address even the most challenging disorders.
