Transplant programs

Children's Wisconsin has been a pioneer in pediatric heart, liver, kidney, and bone marrow transplants for more than three decades now – helping hundreds of children with end-stage diseases survive and thrive.

Children's transplant programs

The transplant process is an ongoing physical and emotional journey for you and your family. However, if your child suffers from a chronic disease that could lead to organ failure and all other treatment options have been exhausted, a transplant may be the best and only choice.

Our approach to pediatric transplant is multidisciplinary and family-focused. We strive to build a partnership between your family and our team of specialists so your family has the information and support needed through the whole process.
