Pediatric Clinical Care

Liver Transplantation

The pediatric liver transplant team at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, with more than 20 years' experience, is a national transplant volume leader. Data from the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) shows that over the past five years we have performed more pediatric liver transplants than any other U.S. center.

Kidney Transplantation

The pediatric kidney transplant team at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford is a national transplant volume leader. In fact, over the past five years, data from the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) shows we have performed more pediatric kidney transplants than any other U.S. center.

Intestinal Transplantation

The Pediatric Intestinal Transplant Program at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford is the only program in Northern California that performs intestinal transplantation (also called small bowel transplant).

Created in 2001 with the Pediatric Liver Transplant team, the Pediatric Intestinal Transplant Program has helped intestinal transplantation progress from an experimental procedure to a life-saving therapy. Major advances in surgical techniques, immunosuppressive medications, infection prevention and treatment, patient selection, and timely placement on the transplant waiting list have helped improve outcomes significantly.
