Lurie Children’s has one of the largest and most experienced pediatric liver transplant teams in the country. We provide family-centered care, which means the entire family is involved in the patient’s treatment plan. We use a multidisciplinary team to plan your child’s treatment so that your child gets the most comprehensive care possible. Our team members are from various healthcare specialties, and they bring a variety of experiences to the program. They will all consider your child’s treatment and use their combined perspectives to create a holistic care plan that focuses on the whole person.
Our program puts a unique emphasis on long-term follow-up care. Patients in our program can ask team members questions until they reach adulthood.
We also have a strong commitment to research dedicated to improving the health of children with severe liver disease. Some of our doctors have pioneered transplant techniques that many surgeons now use, including the surgical techniques needed for living donor liver transplant.
