Liver transplantation

"Since performing the first liver transplant in Germany in 1973, the MHH has established itself as one of the most experienced and largest transplant centers in Germany and Europe.

Today, liver transplantation represents a standard therapeutic procedure for acute or chronic liver failure. In close interdisciplinary cooperation, especially with our colleagues of the Department of Hepatology at the MHH, liver transplantation is offered for all common indications after appropriate evaluation of the cause of liver failure and assessment of the health status of the potential recipient. In addition to conventional transplantation of an organ referred via the waiting list, this also includes living donor transplantation.

Since the turn of the millennium, more than 2,000 liver transplants have been performed at the MHH.

Through the further development of organ preservation, surgical techniques and immunosuppressive therapy to prevent rejection, our department is an international pioneer in the field of liver transplantation and can offer you modern transplantation surgery at the highest level.

Please contact us personally, gladly also for a second opinion!"
