About Abhishek Mathur, MD


Dr. Abhishek Mathur is an Assistant Professor of Surgery with the Liver Transplant & Hepatobiliary Surgery program at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Dr. Mathur's clinical focus includes treatment of both benign and cancerous diseases of the liver, bile ducts, and pancreas. He performs surgical procedures for these diseases that includes liver resection, transplantation, living donor liver transplant surgery and surgery of the pancreas and bile ducts.


He has made significant contributions in cancer research in these organ systems with recognition for the same in the form of multiple awards at meetings of the American Transplant Congress, International Liver Transplant Society, International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association, Florida Society of General Surgeons, Indiana Chapter of the American College of Surgeons, Florida Chapter of the American College of Surgeons and also from Columbia University and Indiana University Simon Cancer Center.


Additionally, he is doing novel work in ex-vivo (outside of the body) normothermic perfusion of the liver. Warm machine perfusion of livers has gained attention recently – and is being used to evaluate functionality of extended criteria livers prior to transplant. However, there has been limited data so far regarding rehabilitation of these livers. Fatty livers and DCD livers are prime candidates for this scenario. Dr. Mathur is researching pathbreaking techniques to defat and recover these livers to make them transplantable.


Dr. Mathur completed his general surgery residency at the University of South Florida. He then went on to Columbia University in New York to complete his abdominal transplant, including living donor liver transplant, and hepatobiliary fellowship (HPB). Following this he pursued his interest in living donor liver transplant & advanced liver and pancreas surgery, at a high volume center, working with Prof. Rela (of Kings College London/Global Hospital). He is a member of and has been nominated to serve on committees in the leading national surgical organizations including the American Society of Transplant Surgeons and American Hepato Pancreato Biliary Association.
