Pediatric Transplant Program

Pediatric Transplant Program

As one of the largest comprehensive pediatric transplant programs in the country, we are the only program in Texas to have performed over 1,000 abdominal transplants.

Children’s Health offers one of the longest-running, most experienced pediatric multi-organ transplant programs in the nation. We serve a multi-state referral area for newborns through late teens, and our partnership with UT Southwestern allows us to provide the only academically affiliated pediatric transplant program in North Texas. This collaboration elevates the care we give and gives you access to the most current research available and unmatched clinical expertise.

We feature transplant programs for heart, kidney and liver transplants as well as a living donor program that helps save lives by matching donors with recipients in need.
