Pediatric Liver Transplants

The Pediatric Liver Transplant team has collaborated with UAB transplant services since 1993 and has performed 150 liver transplants to date, exceeding the national average for both one-year and three-year graft and patient survival rates. The Pediatric Transplant Center at Children’s of Alabama was opened in March 2013 at the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children. Our patients are cared for by a skilled, multidisciplinary team including UAB surgeons, pediatric gastroenterologists, hepatology services, liver transplant coordinators, and other specialists in our transplant program. The evaluation phase is completed in the outpatient transplant clinic by the entire team including a social worker, nutritionist, child life professional, pharmacist, and other specialists. Our team coordinates all aspects of care during the evaluation phase, transplantation, and post-procedure care to ensure positive outcomes.
