Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation

Having established the largest liver practice in the state over the past several years, St. Joseph’s had a solid foundation when it began liver transplantation in August 2015. And while the program is in its early stages, its highly experienced liver team is not – together, they have participated in more than 500 liver transplants.

Unlike other centers, St. Joseph’s offers a whole-body approach to liver disease, investing equally in the prevention and treatment of early-stage disease as well as end-stage disease management. Many services are available throughout Arizona, with satellite clinics in Kingman, Tucson and Flagstaff and educational programs statewide. For more information, call 602.406.5483.
