The Transplant Center
The Liver Disease and Transplantation Program at Primary Children's Hospital provides comprehensive care for children with liver disease from diagnosis through transplantation and follow-up-up care. Our program has the largest volume in the Rocky Mountain West, providing liver care to patients from more than 6 Western states, nationally as well as internationally.
What Sets Us Apart
Our program was established in 1996 and is run by experienced clinicians and surgeons who actively participate in national research programs and initiatives. We share in the Primary Children's philosophy of "The Child First and Always," and our care team will be a great resource as you begin to navigate the transplant process.
Our program provides transplantation for 15 - 17 children per year and is a collaboration between Primary Children's Hospital, University of Utah and Intermountain Medical Center. This 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 whole liver transplantation, our program performs split liver transplantation and living donor liver transplantation.
