The Liver Transplant Program at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh treats children with acute to end-stage liver disease.
UPMC Children's Hospital is among one of the most skilled centers in using living-donor liver transplant (LDLT) to treat — and in some cases cure — metabolic disease.
Outcomes for liver transplant are excellent, but quality deceased-donor organs are scarce.
To address the organ shortage, surgeons at UPMC Children's formed a living-donor liver transplant program as a life-saving option.
UPMC is a leading U.S. center for children's LDLT.
In 1997, our surgeons performed the first LDLT. The 18-month-old boy had biliary atresia and successfully received part of his father's liver.
Our program has shown exceptional results, reporting one and three-year survival rates at 100%.
The use of liver tissue from living donors helps us achieve success in many ways, including:
