Liver Transplant Program

Boston Children’s Hospital Liver Transplant Program is here to support your child and your family throughout the transplant journey. Our team has spent more than three decades treating, studying and redefining the medical and surgical care of pediatric liver transplant patients, giving thousands of children with end-stage liver disease a second chance at life.

The program works closely with Boston Children’s Center for Childhood Liver Diseases, a part of the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, and is part of Boston Children’s Pediatric Transplant Center, which combines the efforts of specialists in heart, lung, liver, intestine and multivisceral and kidney transplantation, where the experience from one transplant program can assist with the outcomes of another.
