Preparing for a liver transplant.

After your child is referred to us, they will be scheduled for an evaluation. Time is needed to get all of the team members involved and prepare for the exams and studies needed. How long this takes may depend on how urgent the need is. In cases of sudden liver failure (fulminant hepatic failure) or other urgent cases, the evaluation will be scheduled as soon as possible. In this case, it would be done in the intensive care unit or on the transplant floor.
