Pediatric Liver Center
Our team includes pediatric surgeons and hepatologists (liver disease specialists), as well as radiologists, interventional radiologists and pathologists who focus on liver care. We treat all forms of liver disease as well as liver problems caused by other conditions, such as obesity and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Our specialists provide the full spectrum of care, from medications to surgery, and are experts in minimally invasive techniques for diagnosis and treatment. As our patients grow, we help them seamlessly transition to adult care.
Our Liver Tumor and Hepatoblastoma Clinic offers expert care for liver tumors, both noncancerous and cancerous, and our Liver Transplant Program is known for excellent outcomes.
As part of a leading research institution, our center is equally dedicated to improving the understanding of pediatric liver disease and pioneering new therapies. Our patients are among the first to benefit from valuable discoveries.
