Texas Children’s Hospital is a national leader in pediatric transplants. As the largest pediatric transplant program in the country, we have performed over 2,100 solid organ transplants since 1984. Being one of the most active pediatric transplant centers in the world, our physicians, surgeons and staff are setting a new standard of transplant care that provides the best opportunity for every child to thrive.
We offer a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach through each aspect of the transplant process. From initial referrals to hospitalization and post-transplant outpatient care, patients have access to more than 40 different specialties, ensuring all facets of care are addressed.
