C. Burcin Taner, M.D., studies liver transplant outcomes and transplant resource utilization in order to increase the short- and long-term success rates after liver transplant and to identify efficient ways to decrease the cost of liver transplantation.
Dr. Taner also studies outcomes of liver transplantation using liver grafts from donation after cardiac death (DCD) donors. The goal of this research is to identify reasons for graft failure and increased complication rates and develop best practices to increase success rates.
Dr. Taner's hope is that through his research, better practices can be developed for the benefit of patients waiting for transplantation. With his work, he also aims to understand the reasons for graft failure after transplantation with the goal of developing preventative strategies to avoid second transplantations, which will also help decrease the cost of care.
