The Liver and Intestinal Transplant Program at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics provides a comprehensive approach to treating children with end-stage liver disease, liver and/or intestinal failure. The Liver Transplant Program is a key component of our comprehensive Liver Care Center which provides the full spectrum of medical and surgical care for children with liver disease.
Liver and Intestinal Transplant Staff
Our multidisciplinary team works with referring physicians to ensure effective continuity of care for pediatric recipients and their families. For children diagnosed with liver tumors, such as Hepatoblastoma, we work closely with the oncology team to optimize timing of transplant. Long-term follow up is provided through a joint transplant/oncology clinic in order to minimize the number of appointments the patient must attend.
