The Siragusa Transplantation Center at Lurie Children’s consistently ranks among the top pediatric transplant centers in the nation on an annual basis, both in volumes and outcomes. The center performed 55 solid organ transplants in 2018, including 25 heart transplants, 9 liver transplants, 20 kidney transplants, and one intestinal transplant, making it the leading pediatric transplant center for volume in Illinois, and the only pediatric heart transplant program.
Our programs remain focused on enhancing the care and outcomes of all patients, providing care to the smallest infants through adolescence and adulthood.
