One of the largest pediatric transplant centers in the nation
We often have success with cases other programs might consider untreatable.
Transplant Services at Texas Children’s Hospital is one of the largest pediatric transplantation programs in the nation, performing 86 solid organ transplants in 2015, making it the most active pediatric transplant program in the nation. Our depth of skill and service, both within the program and throughout the hospital, gives us the ability to care for newborns to young adults in need of heart, kidney, liver and lung transplants.

Transplant Services is proud of its long list of firsts, including the hospital’s first – and 1 of only 3 in the nation – triple transplant of heart, lungs and liver in one procedure. We also performed the first pediatric lung-kidney transplant in the United States. Since 2004, nine patients have been transplanted with double organs, including liver-kidney, liver-lung, heart-lung, heart-kidney and lung-kidney.
We accept referrals from around the world and often have success with cases other programs might consider untreatable, including transplants in infants. We are accredited by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS). We also partner with LifeGift for local organ procurement.
