Liver Transplant Program

Close up image of Evelyn's face

The first liver transplant at SickKids was performed October 1986.  The SickKids Liver Transplant program's mission is to provide world-class comprehensive pre- and post-liver transplant care and superior clinical outcomes for infants, children and adolescents with end-stage liver disease via a family-centered approach with a strong interdisciplinary commitment.  We are a leader in innovation in paediatric liver transplant care, research, advocacy, and education.  Our position as a leader and pioneer within Canada is evidenced by frequent requests to provide second opinions for complex patient cases that are not considered transplantable by other programs.

Approximately 50 per cent of transplanted livers utilized for SickKids patients are donated by living donors.
