Liver Transplant Referral Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I need a transplant?

For most individuals, a gastroenterologist or primary care provider will advise you when you should be seen at a transplant center. Often times, they will refer you to a transplant center to get an opinion about whether a liver transplant is right for you. A referral is usually made for someone who has been diagnosed with some form of liver disease that has progressed to cirrhosis.
