Meet David Rodriguez, living donor liver transplant recipient and ALF Advocacy Ambassador.
Dr. Simpson is a decorated surgeon, a loving mother, wife and a fierce advocate for liver patients in underserved communities.
Your liver can regenerate after surgical removal or injury with as little as 50% of the original liver remaining, making living-donor liver transplants one of the most successful treatments for those suffering from late-stage liver disease.
Approximately 6,000 liver transplants are performed in the U.S. each year. But more than 17,000 Americans are still waiting for donated livers to become available for transplants.
This podcast features a panel that consists of liver transplant patients who share stories and discuss the patient experience surrounding liver transplants.
Live donor liver transplantation is when a healthy person donates a portion of their liver to another person in need of a liver transplant.
