Liver Transplant

About us

The Victorian Liver Transplantation Unit is a collaborative service between Austin Health and the Royal Children’s hospital, and provides liver transplant services to residents in Victoria, Tasmania and parts of Southern New South Wales. Under certain circumstances patients are accepted from outside of this geographically distinct area. We cater for patients of all ages, with paediatric transplantation being performed in collaboration with the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Over 700 liver transplants, including over 100 paediatric liver transplants, have been performed since 1988 and world class survival outcomes have been achieved.
