Our Liver Transplant Program provides compassionate, state-of-the-art care to children who have liver disease. At Seattle Children's, we have been performing liver transplant surgery since 1990.
“Thanks to God because he sent us to the best hospital. We hope that no one has to go there, but if they do, we would say, ‘Do not be afraid because you're in very good hands.’”
– Justino Hurtado
Eugenia and Justino Hurtado's four children were all born with a serious illness that could only be cured with a liver transplant, but the family was terrified of the risks. Seattle Children’s transplant experts helped the Hurtados overcome their fears and changed their lives for the better.
The only pediatric liver transplant program in the Pacific Northwest
The prospect of an organ transplant can be frightening and feel overwhelming. We will help your entire family understand the transplant process, develop new skills to cope with your child’s illness and hospital stay.
