pediatric liver transplants —giving children new hope

Decades of Experience

Miami Transplant Institute has been doing liver transplants for almost 50 years with more than 4,000 livers since 1988. We perform more than 125 liver transplants a year, one of the highest volumes in the world. Because our team can transplant new livers in patients who have been turned down by other centers because of their age or medical conditions, physicians at other transplant centers send their most complex cases to us.

Pediatric Liver Transplant Program

Miami Transplant Institute offers a child-focused pediatric liver transplant program. Our young patients also appreciate our specially designed pediatric intensive care unit with well-trained and experienced physicians caring for them after surgery.

Bringing New Research to Our Patients

Our surgical team uses novel techniques that increase the number of available livers for our patients awaiting a transplant. For instance, we can perform successful transplants involving donors or recipients with hepatitis C (HCV) or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). We are also part of a multicenter study that involves preserving the donor liver at normal temperature using a blood perfusion machine, rather than cold preservation of the liver. Other studies involve the use of different immunosuppressants to improve transplant outcomes.

Living Liver Donor Transplant Program

We now offer a Living Liver Donor transplant program, giving parents, family members, and other donors an opportunity to provide a lobe of their liver to a transplant recipient. This alternative, when available, can reduce the waiting time for a donor organ, and improve the long-term outcome. In most donors and recipients, the liver grows significantly in four to six weeks and is capable of providing normal liver function.

For patients of all ages, our dedicated liver transplant team delivers compassionate, personalized care that offers new hope for a brighter tomorrow.
