Liver transplant success rates

Survival rates for liver transplant patients are tracked nationally by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients.

To help you understand these rates, keep in mind that other centers may have higher success rates because they don’t accept highly challenging transplant cases. Patients who come to University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, for a liver transplant often are high-risk, seriously ill patients, who were unable to get a liver transplant at another center.
