The Saint Louis University Liver Center's strength lies in evaluating and managing patients with all types of liver disease, ranging from simple to complex conditions. Our physicians strive to provide the most accurate, timely and cost-effective evaluation of people with liver enzyme abnormalities and known liver disease, or those with complications of cirrhosis.

Our Liver Transplant Services
Through Saint Louis University Hospital, the Saint Louis University Liver Center's transplant service is approved by UNOS, certified by Medicare and designated as a center of excellence by several major insurance providers. Recognizing that continuity of pre- and post-operative care is just as essential to successful outcomes as the actual surgery, our multidisciplinary team is dedicated to providing the full spectrum of care to liver transplant patients.
Saint Louis University hepatologists work closely with the liver transplant surgeons and the pre- and post-transplant coordinators to develop an individualized plan for each patient.
The goal of the Liver Center is to provide patients with efficient and cost-effective care from evaluation to post-transplant follow-up.
