Swedish has a long tradition of excellence as a transplant center for kidney and pancreas transplantation. In recent years, it has built on that history and expanded services to include liver transplantation. Swedish is one of only two adult liver transplant centers serving the four-state organ-procurement region that includes Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho.
While some liver conditions and complications can be treated with medications, liver transplantation may be the only option for irreversible acute and chronic liver disease.
