UCLA Medical Center

The flagship program of the Division of Liver and Pancreas Transplantation was founded in 1984 as the UCLA Liver Transplant Program under the leadership of Dr. Ronald W. Busuttil. Rededicated in 1992 as The Dumont-UCLA Transplant Center, clinical activities encompass the entire spectrum of liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery for adult and pediatric patients. In addition to liver transplantation, our services have grown to include The UCLA Small Intestinal Transplant Program, The UCLA Pancreas Transplant Program and most recently, The Dumont-UCLA Liver Cancer Center.

As part of an academic medical center, the Division of Liver and Pancreas Transplantation is dedicated to the training and education of medical students, interns, residents and visiting scholars. Further, the Division offers a two-year American Society of Transplant Surgeons accredited Fellowship in Multi-organ Transplantation Surgery which is considered to be one of the finest in the world.

In the research arena, the Division has maintained a strong international presence in both clinical and basic scientific disciplines. Scientific advancements are pursued in the Dumont-UCLA Transplantation Laboratories and the Dumont-UCLA Liver Cancer Laboratory, involving projects in a variety of areas. Current areas of particular study include graft tolerance, immunology, ischemia reperfusion injury and genetic mapping of liver tumors.
