About Our Team

Our Intestinal Transplant Program began in 2001 with a team of physicians from our Pediatric Liver Transplant Program. Together, they represent more than 25 years of transplant experience.

Today, the Pediatric Intestinal Transplant team, like all of our teams across the hospital, takes a family-centered, multidisciplinary approach to ensure the best possible outcomes for your child.
