Pediatric Liver Center

About Us

The Pediatric Liver Center in the Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Hopkins Children's offers a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and management of pediatric liver disease.

A child with liver disease requires skillful management by an experienced team that includes the referring physician, with the backing of an organized group of specialists, including pediatric hepatologists, pediatric liver transplant surgeons, advanced practice nurses, a nutritionist, a social worker, and a parent support group.

In addition, multiple other specialists provide service as needed. Pediatric Liver Center physicians are available 24 hours a day for prompt consultation.
