In the days following the transplant procedure at Cincinnati Children's, your child will stay in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). This allows us to closely monitor his or her recovery during a critical time. You can be with your child most of the day, but you cannot stay overnight in your child’s room. We offer parent sleep rooms in the PICU on a first-come, first-served basis. You will need to arrange for outside lodging in case you are unable to get a parent sleep room.

Because long-term follow-up care is critical to maintaining the health of the liver graft and ensuring optimal medical and functional outcomes, we partner with families and their local physicians (primary care or gastroenterology) to provide continuity of care into adulthood. Our team has followed more than 400 isolated liver patients post-transplant, many of whom reside outside of the Cincinnati area.
