Before becoming a living donor, you will have an extensive evaluation by the experts at the UPMC Liver Transplant Program, who will make sure you’re a good candidate for living-donor surgery. They will also make sure that donating poses the least possible risk to you and the child in need and help find a child for which you are the most appropriate medical match.
Following the evaluation, our transplant team will help guide you through the next steps and prepare you for surgery.
