Liver Transplant Clinic
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 Ave., 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
12 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.
