Dr. Nadege Gunn on Liver Transplant

Hepatologist, Dr. Nadege Gunn with Pinnacle Clinical and special consultant to Austin Gastro, explains who is considered for liver transplantation. One way physicians prioritize who should be seriously considered for a liver transplant is by looking at the patient's MESLD Score (Model End Stage Liver Disease).
