Liver transplant team
In February 2017, the liver transplant team performed the first liver transplant using the OrganOx ex vivo perfusion device, a novel system that preserves and improves donor organs outside of the body.

The Duke Division of Abdominal Transplant Surgery is actively involved in clinical and basic research that translates to advances and improvements in transplantation.

Clinical Trials

Investigators in the Division of Abdominal Transplant Surgery lead several clinical trials to assess novel therapies that minimize the risk of organ rejection in transplant recipients. See the full list of our clinical trials.
