Liver Transplant Program
A liver transplant is a surgical procedure that replaces a diseased liver with a healthy liver from another person. A liver transplant involves the care of many specialists and staff members including pediatric surgeons, hepatologists, transplant coordinators, gastroenterologist, intensivists, radiologists, nurses, anesthesiologists and nutritionists. Our well-rounded, family-centered care also involves social workers, psychologists, school teachers, Child Life specialists and many other support services. Plus, our kid-friendly hospital campus has an uplifting environment full of light and color with private patient rooms, family areas, playrooms, food services, a rooftop garden and playground.
With you every step of the way
Aftercare is vital to the health of a liver transplant patient. Our team works in collaboration with your primary care physician to assure that all medical needs are addressed moving forward. We also develop long-term relationships with you and your child to make sure your child has the best chance for a long, healthy life. Some patients may experience difficulties adapting to this life-changing medical experience, and our psycho-social programs and staff specialize in dealing with these issues. Once your child reaches adulthood, we will help you transition care to an adult facility.
