Laparoscopic Living Liver Donation

Shorter recovery times. Better outcomes. More lives saved.

UMass Memorial Medical Center is a pioneer in laparoscopic living liver donation and one of only two programs in the U.S. performing this procedure. With our experienced surgeons and specially trained staff, you can be confident you’re in good hands if you elect to become a living liver donor.

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally-invasive surgical technique that involves the use of a tiny camera to guide the surgeon, allowing for much smaller incisions. The use of laparoscopic technology makes living liver donation much safer with a dramatically shorter and smoother recovery period for the donor.
