Benefits of Living Liver Donation

In the United States, more than 17,500 patients are on the waiting list to receive a liver transplant. Although more than 6,000 liver transplants are performed every year, many patients need alternative solutions. Watch Dr. Benjamin Philosophe as he discusses the benefits of living donation and how it not only saves the life of a recipient, but also frees up a liver for a patient on the waiting list.

Liver Transplant for Biliary Atresia | Alicia's Story

Alicia was diagnosed with biliary atresia at 3 weeks old. The family flew from Nairobi to Baltimore to get additional care and ultimately a liver transplant for Alicia at Johns Hopkins Children's Center. After finding out both parents were a match for liver transplant, Alicia's father decided to be the living donor for Alicia. Alicia became the youngest living donor transplant recipient at Johns Hopkins and possibly, in the country.
