The Liver Disease and Transplantation Program at Primary Children’s Medical Center was established in 1996 to address the needs of children in the Intermountain Area with liver disease. This program is a collaborative effort between Primary Children’s Medical Center and the Liver Transplant Programs at the University of Utah and Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
This program has provided transplantation for an average of 10 children per year, making the program a moderate-sized program when compared nationally to other pediatric liver transplant programs. The collaborative nature of this program with the University of Utah and Intermountain Medical Center affords families the benefits of consultation provided by a large group of experts in the field of liver transplantation, while maintaining the personal nature of the care provided. In addition to standard liver transplantation, this program performs reduced-size, split liver, and living donor liver transplantation.
The Liver Disease and Transplantation Program at Primary Children’s Medical Center provides comprehensive care for children with liver disease from diagnosis through transplantation and beyond. We share in the Primary Children’s philosophy of “The Child First and Always”. Our care team will be a great resource as you begin to navigate the transplant process. We will be there every step of the way.
The Liver Transplant Clinic is a University of Utah, School of Medicine clinic held at Primary Children’s Hospital and is staffed with physicians from the University of Utah, School of Medicine.
