Post-Liver Transplant Program

Our program is dedicated to providing specialized care and support to children who have undergone a liver transplant. We understand that the journey to recovery and returning to regular routines after a liver transplant can be challenging. That's why our collaborative team is here to assist and guide your child every step of the way.

Comprehensive Post-Transplant Care

Our team employs a collaborative and comprehensive approach to post-liver transplant care. We have a team that includes dietitian, social worker, physician, nurse, pharmacist and child life supports who plays a crucial role in monitoring and managing your child's treatment and progress. This ensures that your child receives the highest level of care and support during the recovery process.

Monitoring and Management

After a liver transplant, regular monitoring is essential to track your child's progress and overall well-being. Our team conducts thorough assessments, including clinical evaluations and specialized tests including liver biopsies and various imaging, to ensure the transplanted liver is functioning optimally. We also provide guidance on medication management, dietary considerations, and lifestyle adjustments to promote a healthy recovery. 

Transition to Adult Care

We understand that the transition from pediatric to adult care can be a significant milestone in a transplant recipient's life. We are actively working on the development of a Transition to Adult Transplant Care Clinic to support young patients as they navigate this transition. Our goal is to ensure a seamless and well-coordinated transfer of care to adult healthcare providers when the time is right.
