Pediatric Transplant Center Overview

We have been performing organ transplants for children since 1971 at Cleveland Clinic Children’s. Innovative procedures, world-class pediatric physicians and a multidisciplinary approach make us unique and allow us to focus on any organ transplant necessary for life sustaining or quality-of-life treatment.

Each child’s family will work with a team that includes: specialty physician, transplant surgeon, dietitian, and pharmacist.
