In brief: Find a center

First you must be evaluated by a transplant center. A referral can be made by your primary doctor or hepatologist.
You could also contact them directly. There they will determine if you actually need one and if you qualify medically. You must be sick enough to need a new liver but healthy enough to survive the surgery.
