y children still have a mother because of all of these special people," Berman said.

Dr. Cacciarelli said Berman will now receive the standard post-transplant care regimen, including continuous monitoring of her liver function and for a period of time weekly visits to AGH's transplant clinic for routine diagnostic follow up.

"The success of Christine's surgery underscores the impressive level of expertise and sophistication that this program brings to the community. The severity of her liver disease was such that a multi disciplinary team approach was necessary for a successful outcome," said Dr. Cacciarelli.

The AGH team performed its second liver transplant on November 8. That patient too is recovering well, Dr. Cacciarelli said.

According to UNOS, more than 17,000 people in the U.S. are on the waiting list for liver transplantation, including approximately 2,537 people combined from the region that includes the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.

UNOS data also shows that the demand for liver transplantation has been steadily increasing over the past five years.

Other key members of the AGH Liver Transplantation Program include Michael Dishart, M.D., chief anesthesiologist, Bryan Veynovich, M.D., critical care medicine and Jose Oliva, M.D., hepatologist and medical director of the program.

Paul Lebovitz, M.D., director of AGH's Division of Gastroenterology said that adding liver transplantation to the spectrum of advanced therapies for hepatic disease already offered at the hospital is an important step forward for AGH and for the region.

Under Dr. Lebovitz's direction, AGH's gastroenterology practice is the second largest program in western Pennsylvania and annually refers 20 to 30 patients to other hospitals for liver transplantation evaluation.

"The last thing a very sick patient needs at the most critical point in their disease management is to be sent to a healthcare facility and into the care
