In response to the growing need for a full-service pre-liver transplant evaluation clinic in the southern suburbs, we are pleased to offer the Northwestern Medicine Liver Transplant Care Urbana/Champaign, Illinois.
Our focus on community outreach benefits patients and their physicians by providing many of the pre-liver transplant services closer to home. Our goal in offering such convenience is that it will lead to an excellent patient experience and a successful liver transplant.
Liver transplant care
We are available to see the following types of patients at the Northwestern Medicine transplant outreach clinic in Urbana/Champaign:
- Complex liver disease patients: Patients requiring a consultation or second opinion have the option of being evaluated at a clinic closer to home.
- Potential liver transplant candidates: The initial visit to determine the likelihood of being a transplant candidate can be done at the clinic. If the patient is identified as a candidate, the patient will require evaluation by the liver transplant team at Northwestern Memorial Hospital before being listed for a liver transplant.
- Patients on the liver transplant waiting list: From the time patients are listed until transplantation, they may choose to have basic follow-up visits either at Northwestern Memorial Hospital or at the satellite clinic.
