Liver Transplant Clinic

About

One of the collaborations between Washington Hospital Healthcare System and UCSF Medical Center is a Liver Transplant Clinic. On the fourth Friday of every month, UCSF holds a Liver Transplant Clinic for District patients at 1900 Mowry Avenue, Suite 1 in Fremont.

Since 1988, when it was first established, UCSF has developed one of the largest, most innovative and successful liver transplant programs in the country.  UCSF performs between 140-160 transplants annually, including a dozen pediatric transplants, and has performed more than 3,000 liver transplants as of February 2014.  UCSF’s annual volume consistently places UCSF among the top five liver transplant programs in the country.  UCSF currently has the fourth largest living donor liver transplant program, and according to the most recent data available, the only program performing living donor transplants in northern California.  UCSF’s program continues to produce exceptional clinical outcomes.

The Liver Transplant Clinic in Fremont is staffed by Bilal Hameed, MD, board certified gastroenterologist and transplant hepatologist. Dr. Hameed is an assistant clinical professor of medicine at UCSF.  He completed his residency in medicine and fellowship in gastroenterology at the University of Minnesota and his transplant hepatology fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco.  After completing his fellowship in 2010, he was invited to join the faculty at UCSF and has already established himself as one of UCSF’s top transplant hepatologists clinically, academically and professionally.  His clinical and research areas of interest include non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, sleep apnea, fatty liver disease, primary sclerosing cholangitis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
