World-Class Care from and Experienced Team of Specialists
A liver transplant is a life-changing experience for your child and family, and you want the best, most experienced transplant team by your side every step of the way—from evaluation to surgery to long-term follow up. At Cincinnati Children’s, our specialists offer expert medical and surgical care for children with irreversible, end-stage liver disease who need a transplant.
Each year, our surgeons perform some of the most complex liver transplant procedures, including transplants on newborns and liver transplants from living donors. We also collaborate across specialties to provide multidisciplinary expertise for patients needing multi-organ transplants and include cancer specialists as integral team members for patients with unresectable liver tumors. And our wait times for a new liver are three times shorter than the national average.
Our pediatric liver transplant center is one of the largest in North America, but we are committed to helping families schedule their child’s first appointment as soon as possible. We make sure families can come see our team within a month of their initial call, or sooner if the need is urgent. We know that time is of the essence when a child is suffering from a serious liver disease.
