Paediatric Hepatology Program

The Paediatric Liver Program at Children's Hospital LHSC is dedicated to providing comprehensive and specialized care for children living with chronic liver diseases or who have undergone a liver-transplant. We understand that young patients and their families dealing with liver-related conditions require unique attention and support. Our multidisciplinary team is here to guide you through the complexities of pediatric hepatology, ensuring the best possible care for your child.

Liver diseases in children encompass a range of conditions, each with its own set of challenges and considerations. Our team is well-equipped to diagnose and manage these conditions, whether it's a chronic liver disease or the post-transplant phase. 

Paediatric Liver Clinic

Our program addresses various chronic liver diseases that affect children, such as viral hepatitis, autoimmune liver disorders, metabolic liver diseases, and more. We focus on long-term management and improving your child's quality of life. The children seen in these clinics range from newborns to adolescents, and require various degrees and levels of care depending on their diagnosis. This clinic receives referrals from family doctors, paediatricians, nurse practitioners and other subspecialists.

Paediatric Post-Liver Transplant Clinic

For children who have undergone liver transplantation, we offer specialized care to ensure the success of the transplant and the overall well-being of the child. This includes monitoring for organ rejection, managing immunosuppressive medications, and providing ongoing support. Our services allow families to repatriate back to London and surrounding area following their transplant and resume their life and activities closer to home and be back in their regular supportive environment. We also work closely with the adult hepatology liver program to allow for a smooth transition of care when your child gets into their later adolescent years.
