Some of the first recipients of liver transplants were children. Advances in surgical techniques and anti-rejection medicines have greatly increased the chances of a successful outcome for this treatment option in children. We perform transplantation in both living related donors and shared liver surgeries.

Whenever an infant, child or teen develops liver disease, our Pediatric Liver Transplant team works with referring pediatricians to increase their chances for long-term survival. We pledge to do everything in our power to make a transplant a reality - we will work expeditiously for our patients.
