Pediatric hepatologists are children’s liver doctors. Nemours treats the most complex liver conditions, including liver cancer and conditions that need a liver transplant.
Kids and young adults can develop problems with the liver because of an infection or other disease. Sometimes babies are born with liver issues.
Other organs and systems in the body rely on the liver. Liver health and digestive health may be linked. That’s why some pediatric gastroenterologists, or specialists in kids’ digestive health, further specialize in hepatology.
Nemours is ranked as a top hospital for gastroenterology. We also have special distinction as a pediatric liver center. We’re one of the only health systems in the country to bring together all experts in one place to help treat kids with liver cancer.
We treat liver tumors in children with an image-guided procedure known as Y90. This treatment could offer some kids with liver tumors a cure. It may help others feel better without having to get more chemotherapy that could cause side effects.Learn More
