Narrator: If you're watching this program, it means you're involved in the liver transplant process at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. It means you're nervous, probably even a little scared. You don't have to be. Children's Hospital understands that it's frightening to learn that a child needs to have a liver transplant and that the scariest part is not knowing what's going to happen next.
We're going to show you. Understanding the process is the best way to be prepared for what happens next. And the more you know, the less scared you have to be.
Children's Hospital has one of the largest pediatric liver centers in the country and performs many liver transplants a year. But every member of the team recognizes that the transplant that matters the most is yours or your child's.
This video will explain what you need to know while you're waiting for the transplant, what happens during the surgery, and what to expect during the recovery period.
You can be sure of this: the liver transplant team and everyone throughout Children's Hospital are dedicated to creating the best possible experience for every child and family who comes here.
