Pioneers in compassionate transplant care
Children with complex or life-threatening medical conditions may need an organ transplant to continue a happy and healthy life.
In partnership with the VCU Health Hume-Lee Transplant Center, we are leaders in groundbreaking advances in organ transplantation. We are among the first on the east coast to use reduced-size pediatric liver transplantation in children. We are always looking forward to where the field of transplantation is moving over the next decade, and beyond.

When Evan started dialysis, his nephrology team put a plan of action into place and began planning for a kidney transplant. Months later he was part of a novel chain kidney transplant that forever changed the 5-year-old’s future. Read more about Evan's story.
We know surgery can be scary. Rest assured knowing your child’s surgical care is in the hands of some of the nation’s most experienced transplant surgeons. We work closely with our pediatric specialists from nephrology, gastroenterology and other areas to ensure comprehensive care before and after transplant.
