Pediatric Liver Transplant

U.S. News - Gastroenterology & GI Surgery - Stanford ChildrensThe pediatric liver transplant team at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, with more than 20 years experience, is a national transplant volume leader. In fact, data from the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) shows that over the past five years we have performed more pediatric liver transplants than any other U.S. center.

We are also proud that data gathered by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) shows our three-year liver graft and patient outcome rates are the best in the nation.

We excel at handling the toughest challenges. We provide high-touch care to high-acuity cases, including some of the sickest babies, toddlers and children needing liver transplants.
