OVERVIEW

Dr. Foster graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry, obtained his medical degree at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, and trained in general surgery at the University of Tennessee Medical School in Memphis. He participated in one of the only two liver transplant programs in the country as a resident during the very early years of liver transplantation. Dr. Foster moved to Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago as one of the first fellows in transplantation surgery certified by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons. He is also board certified in general surgery, and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Foster joined the Rush transplant team as an attending physician in 1988 and served on the Transplantation Surgery faculty at Rush. He staffed more than 700 liver transplants and participated in the care of thousands of liver failure patients during his tenure at Rush, making him one of the most experienced active liver transplant surgeons in the country. He joined Texas Transplant Institute in 2000 to establish the Liver Transplant Program. Dr. Foster is widely published on the topics of liver and small intestinal transplantation, immunosuppressant strategies and medications, and contributed to one of the first textbooks written on liver transplantation (Hepatic Transplantation, Saunders, 1990).

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
