Pediatric Organ Transplantation

Learning that your child needs a transplant can be extremely difficult. For the last several decades, our doctors and nurses have worked with thousands of courageous families like yours.

When families come to the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital for a pediatric transplant, many are drawn by our long history of innovation in this complex field of surgery. Others hear about our highly skilled transplant doctors, many of whom have international reputations for their expertise.

But once they become our patients, they tell us that there's one more thing that sets our programs apart. It's our excellent, completely personalized follow-up that families appreciate the most. Our team realizes that your child's recovery is an ongoing process, one that does not end when he or she heads home.

We specialize in helping children with particularly hard-to-treat conditions. Many come to us after a variety of medical and surgical treatments have failed. In many cases, we can offer families hope by providing innovative, yet caring, approaches to kidney and heart transplants.
