OSU’s medical center does it’s 1st living-donor liver transplant


The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Comprehensive Transplant Center has performed its first living-donor liver transplant surgery.

In a living liver donation, a portion of a healthy donor’s liver is transplanted into the recipient after the removal of the diseased liver. Because the liver has the ability to regenerate, the livers in the donor and recipient grow back to 85 to 90 percent of the original size and regain full function within six to eight weeks.
