Pediatric liver transplant
The Pediatric Liver Transplant Program at Children's Mercy Hospital provides a comprehensive approach to treating children with end-stage liver disease and/or 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. Our team of surgeons, nurses, and coordinators are specially trained in pediatric transplant care, with many physicians having more than 30 years of experience. Our care team also includes a full range of support services to meet the needs of every patient and their family members.
What to expect
We know that the liver transplant process can be a time of stress for families. Our goal is prepare patients and families for what to expect during a liver transplant, from start to finish, so you feel empowered to best navigate your child's care.
