Pediatric Liver & Intestine Transplantation

 

Overview

When world-renowned transplant surgeon Thomas E. Starzl, MD, PhD, began Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC’s pediatric liver transplantation program in 1981, it became the premier tertiary care provider for children with end-stage liver disease. Since then, the program has expanded to offer intestinal and multivisceral transplants previously believed impossible.
