Liver Tumor & Hepatoblastoma Clinic
Our Pediatric Liver Tumor & Hepatoblastoma Clinic cares for infants, children and teens with all tumors of the liver and bile duct.
Specialists in pediatric surgery, cancer, gastroenterology, radiology, interventional radiology and pathology collaborate to provide your child with the best possible treatment in a setting designed to make kids and families comfortable. Bringing together leading physicians from multiple fields, UCSF's Liver Tumor Board meets monthly to discuss unique cases and tailor a fitting treatment strategy. Our team offers the latest treatments and techniques, from interventional radiology – using imaging to facilitate precise, minimally invasive treatments that once required traditional surgery – to advanced genetic testing and liver transplant.
Throughout your time with us, our social work and child life teams will be there for your family. They will provide emotional support, information and resources from evaluation and diagnosis to treatment and follow-up care.
We offer video appointments in addition to in-person visits.
