The liver transplant program at Rady Children’s Comprehensive Liver Care Center consists of a multidisciplinary team of specialized medical professionals, including children’s physicians, endoscopists, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, social workers and transplant coordinators. Rady Children’s Hospital has long treated young liver disease patients, from infancy to age 21, with health management and medical procedures along the continuum of care.
The mission of our liver transplant process program is for medical professionals to make pediatric health care in San Diego more comprehensive for liver transplant recipients. Nationwide, about 550 to 600 pediatric liver transplants are performed each year and the expectation of Rady Children’s Hospital is to perform 10 pediatric liver transplants a year with the capacity for more if needed.
