Specialists at University of Minnesota Medical Center’s Liver Clinic and University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital have a national reputation in the treatment of liver diseases, including liver failure and metabolic liver disease. Our full range of care, coupled with leading-edge research, results in superior outcomes for children receiving treatment with us.
When that treatment involves a liver transplant, children receive excellent care at our Transplant Center. Our team of specialists has performed more than 540 pediatric liver transplants since 1964. In 1982, we performed a successful liver transplant on an 11-month-old infant, who has become the world’s longest living pediatric liver recipient. Our living-donor liver transplants have some of the highest success rates in the United States. Our goal is to provide treatments leading to the highest quality of life.
