We treat children with some of the most serious and complex conditions that require the highest level of medical and surgical expertise, and our transplant outcomes - both complication rates and long-term survival - are among the best in the nation. All children who receive an organ transplant are cared for in age-appropriate pediatric units where special emphasis is placed on the individual needs of the patient and their families.
The Renal Transplant Program
The Renal Transplant Program offers deceased and living donor transplants. Through the living donor program all cases are performed using the minimally invasive laparoscopic technique, which decreases postoperative pain. With a 100 percent one-year survival rate for pediatric recipients of both living-related and cadaver kidney transplant recipients, the Renal Transplant Program is consistently improving dialysis management, transplantation surgery techniques and medication therapy strategies to provide the most current treatments and the very best patient care.
Pediatric Liver Transplantation
The strong reputation of the liver transplant program at YNHCH rests on multidisciplinary individual care of children with diverse forms of end-stage liver disease and inherited metabolic liver diseases. Pediatric surgeons and gastroenterologist team members are highly regarded by other physicians nationally and internationally for their successes in treating the full spectrum of pediatric liver problems, leading-edge research and education. This reputation has attracted referrals from physicians around the world who are looking for the best care available for their patients, such as split liver and living donor liver transplantation. Since 2007, the pediatric team has performed a total of 34 transplants with 100 percent graft success and 100 percent patient survival. Whole liver, reduced segment liver, split liver and living related donor transplants are offered.
