Waukesha Liver Outreach Clinic

Ripple Effect


The UW Health Transplant Program’s new Waukesha, Wisconsin clinic makes it more convenient than ever for patients in the Milwaukee area to receive both pre- and post-transplant care closer to home.


The UW Health Transplant Program, which has performed more than 2,300 liver transplants since 1984, has excellent outcomes and its wait list time is shorter than regional and national averages. UW Health also has an active living liver transplant program, providing even more options for patients. Patients who live in southeast Wisconsin can list at UW Health to improve their chances of receiving a liver transplant.


The team seeing patients in Waukesha includes John P. Rice, MD, hepatologist at UW Health; Luis A. Fernandez, MD, transplant surgeon at UW Health; a clinical nurse transplant coordinator; and a transplant social worker. In collaboration with clinicians and staff at ProHealth, they provide the full spectrum of outpatient care, including patient evaluations; radiology, cardiology and lab testing; and post-transplant care. Waukesha clinic patients will receive their transplant at University Hospital in Madison, but all other care can be managed in Waukesha.
