Liver Transplant Program
The Liver Transplant Program provides your child with the best possible care as he prepares for, undergoes and recovers from a liver transplant. The program is led by liver transplant surgeons dedicated exclusively to transplantation and liver surgery for children.
Watch a video that introduces the Liver Transplant Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, which does around 20 pediatric liver transplants a year for children suffering from a host of conditions, including biliary atresia.
CHOP has one of the largest pediatric liver transplant centers in the country. Our surgeons perform anywhere from 10 to 24 liver transplants each year. To date, the program has performed nearly 350 liver transplants, and our survival rates consistently exceed national averages.
