    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Barth serves as the Director of Liver Transplantation and Associate Director of The University of Chicago Medicine Transplant Institute. His clinical practice focuses on kidney, pancreas, and liver transplant with specific accomplishments in living donor kidney and liver transplantation. Dr. Barth has pioneered minimally invasive surgery for living kidney donation and developed and has performed over 500 ‘scarless,’ single-port laparoscopic donor nephrectomies.

    Dr. Barth has active clinical and basic research interests that include novel immunosuppressive therapies, immunologic tolerance, and the use of genetically engineered animal organs for human transplantation (xenotransplantation). Dr. Barth led an active lab investigating transplant tolerance and pre-clinical models of composite facial and limb transplantation, toward the clinical goal of reconstructive transplantation.
