Under the leadership of Jeffery Fair, M.D., professor and Chief of Transplant Surgery, the liver transplant program is actively evaluating patients, adding patients to the wait list and performing transplants.
Health professionals in the Liver Transplant Program at UF Health Shands Hospital have more than 22 years of experience providing excellent care to patients with the most complex liver disease in the state of Florida. Since then, University of Florida physicians have transplanted more than 1600 patients with end-stage liver disease.
The medical director, Roberto Firpi-Morell M.D., and our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurse coordinators, social workers and pharmacists provide lifelong compassionate care to our patients. Dr. Ken Andreoni will be joining Dr. Jeffery Fair and Dr. Ivan Zendejas in August 2012. Our center is certified by the Joint Commission, the United Network of Organ Sharing and Children’s Medical Services.
You can call 352-265-0754 with any questions or if you would like to make a referral to the liver transplant program.
