• Pediatric Liver Transplant Program Changing the Outcome for Patients

    World-Class Care for Serious Conditions

    A liver transplant is a life-changing experience for your child and family, and you want the best, most experienced transplant team on your side.  Since 1985, our team members have performed more than 600 liver transplants, including living-related donor transplants and reduced-size liver transplants. We have even performed liver transplants in children weighing less than 3 kilograms. As one of the largest pediatric liver transplant programs in North America -- both in terms of total transplants performed and ongoing activity -- we provide comprehensive, interdisciplinary care for pediatric patients with irreversible end-stage liver disease.

    To best manage your child’s care, please call to schedule an appointment with us ahead of time -- 513-636-4955 or 1-800-344-2462 (ext. 6-4955).
