The Liver Tumor Program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center provides expert diagnosis and treatment of pediatric liver tumors within a state-of-the-art clinical setting. We offer comprehensive multidisciplinary care to children with hepatoblastoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, hepatic adenoma, sarcoma of the liver and vascular malformations of the liver. The Liver Tumor Program is comprised of expert pediatric oncologists, liver surgeons, pathologists, interventional radiologists, pharmacologists and geneticists in order to provide optimal care to our patients.
We see patients with liver tumors ranging from the more common to the extremely rare, making us one of the largest liver tumor clinics in the nation.
Treatment and Evaluation
Our multidisciplinary team of physicians meets regularly to establish the optimal treatment plan for each individual liver tumor patient. If a liver transplant is the best course of action, our world-renowned pediatric liver transplant team is immediately available. We are one of the few pediatric liver tumor centers in the country to offer transplantation within the same facility. We also offer advanced interventional radiology techniques such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to treat liver lesions, a procedure common for adult patients but new in pediatrics.
