Liver Transplant Program Overview

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Members of the Boston Children’s Hospital Liver Transplant Program evaluate infants, children and adolescents who are potential candidates for transplantation. We manage pediatric patients with end-stage liver disease awaiting transplants and care for children after their transplants. Children cared for in our program may receive whole organ transplants, reduced-size liver transplants, split liver transplants or living donor transplants.

                   Final Liver Transplant

  • In some cases, a liver transplant is done in combination with transplantation of another organ, such as intestine or kidney.

  • Since the program’s inception in 1984, Boston Children’s has performed more than 240 liver transplants.

  • In 2014, U.S. News & World Report ranked Boston Children’s program in gastroenterology #1 in the nation among pediatric hospitals.
