Advanced Liver Transplantation, Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Surgery at One of New York’s Top Hospitals 

Our clinical liver transplant and hepatobiliary program expertise includes adult living donor transplantation, expanded donor criteria, treatment of recurrent hepatitis C, liver resections, and minimally invasive complex biliary surgery. We were the first institution to offer fully laparoscopic living liver donation and we also have among the highest success rates and the shortest wait time for liver transplants in the country. Our approach always seeks to provide patients the least invasive treatment with the best results. Patients receive comprehensive care from a team of specialists — including hepatologists, liver transplant specialists, gastroenterologists, hepatobiliary surgeons, diagnostic and pathology experts, advanced-care nurses, social workers, and patient support staff — who work collaboratively to ensure that they receive the best treatment possible.

Our pancreatic program offers patients with pancreatic diseases and disorders personalized treatments for cancerous and noncancerous conditions, including pancreatic cancer (adenocarcinoma), intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN), pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, solid pseudopapillary tumors, and pancreatic cysts. We excel in early diagnosis, minimally invasive interventions, surgical services, and palliative treatment with a team of physicians — specializing in surgery, advanced endoscopy, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pain management, nutrition, radiology, and pathology. Our program features an interdisciplinary commitment to a personalized care plan that is tailored to each individual and integrates the latest scientific discoveries to overcome the many diagnostic and therapeutic challenges in pancreatic diseases.

Through our collaborations, we offer distinct multidisciplinary clinic programs for patients with Liver Cancer or Pancreatic Cancer, held on Thursdays and Fridays respectively. These programs allow for multiple care team members and physicians to see you via video conference on the same day in a coordinated appointment. The multidisciplinary programs will allow for formulation of a comprehensive treatment plan to maximize your care through all of the cancer services important for your malignancy. The program's designated Access Nurse will help you navigate your care and can also connect you with supportive services as needed. You can call our office to learn more about these programs.
