The Center for Childhood Liver Disease specializes in helping infants, children, adolescents and young adults who have a wide variety of liver, gallbladder and bile duct disorders (otherwise known as hepatobiliary). Doctors refer children with liver disease to this program at Boston Children’s Hospital from all over the world.

Our multidisciplinary approach includes:

  • Hepatology
  • Hepatobiliary Surgery and Liver Transplantation
  • Interventional Radiology
  • Interventional GI Endoscopy

Our expertise:

  • By staying in constant communication with your family and your primary care physicians, you will be involved in many aspects of your child’s care.
  • We offer consultation on both an in-patient and out-patient basis.
  • We have access to the most up-to-date equipment to make an accurate diagnosis including: serologic, radiographic (ultrasound, CT scan, MR and MR cholangiography), histologic (biopsy) and endoscopic examinations.
  • Our comprehensive therapeutic plans may include medications, surgery, endoscopic or experimental therapy.
  • We have access to investigational drug therapies currently in clinical trials.
  • Our liver or multi-organ transplantation team can perform standard, living-donor and segmental or split liver transplants.
  • We offer long-term follow-up care.
