Preparing for a liver transplant.After your child is referred to Cincinnati Children's, he or she will be scheduled for an evaluation.

It may take three to four weeks to get an appointment with multiple members of the Liver Transplant Team and to schedule necessary tests or X-rays. We do our best to schedule the evaluation as soon as we can. In cases of sudden liver failure (fulminant hepatic failure) or other urgent situations, the evaluation is scheduled as soon as possible and may be done in the intensive care unit or on the transplant floor.
