About the Pediatric Transplant Center

The Pediatric Transplant Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is led by world-renowned experts in pediatric transplant. We deliver complete care from evaluation through follow-up to address the full spectrum of transplant needs of patients and their families.

Expert multidisciplinary care

Our top physicians work with expert nurses, therapists, psychologists and exercise physiologists to provide the highest quality medical management for children from infancy through young adulthood, before and after surgery.

CHOP’s transplant capabilities are enriched by the Hospital’s exceptional depth and breadth of experience in every pediatric subspecialty.

Comprehensive support services

We handle all aspects of transplantation, helping families navigate insurance and plan for incidental costs so more of their energy can be spent on their child. Our social workers provide added support as families cope with the stress of the transplant process.

Our research

As one of the top hospitals in the world for pediatric organ transplant, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is also on the leading edge of pediatric transplant research that translates quickly from the lab to patient treatment and care.

We work collaboratively with our research partners to develop new therapies and approaches by studying the full spectrum of pediatric transplant, from pre-transplant and the conditions that lead to transplantation, to outcomes and survivorship.
