The Anesthesia & Perioperative Medicine Transplantation Program provides excellent clinical care to candidates for solid organ transplantation focused on liver, kidney and pancreas, as well as patients undergoing liver resections and major oncologic Hepato-biliary surgeries. Our Faculty includes professionals with vast clinical experience in transplant anesthesia, cardiac anesthesia, and pain management, with an overarching focus on clinical research. We are also involved with preoperative assessment and optimization of patients before they are listed for liver transplant as part of the multidisciplinary collaborative approach at London Health Sciences Centre.

Our Clinical Fellowship offers a full spectrum of opportunities to enhance the leadership in the management of complex patients requiring major surgery using the highest standards of quality of care.  At the end of the program, our Fellows are proficient in the basic use of Transesophageal Echocardiography for intraoperative monitoring and differential diagnosis of unstable patients, point of care coagulation monitoring, and transfusion therapy during major surgeries.  Our program offers exposure to academic and clinical activities framed in evidence-based decision making, research, and quality improvement processes while allowing participants to be immersed in an academic community at Western University.
