Pediatric Liver Transplants

The liver has several important jobs, including cleaning the blood and getting rid of toxins. So when a child’s liver becomes badly diseased or damaged, it may need to be replaced with a healthy liver (or a portion of one), so the body can function normally. Fortunately, pediatric liver transplants can be extremely safe and successful, and they can cure many cases of childhood liver failure.
