Charity Overview

The paediatric liver transplant unit was established at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead (CHW) in 1986. Since then, more than 350 life-saving transplant operations have been performed on children who come to CHW from all over Australia. Paediatric liver transplant surgery is complex and requires a dedicated team of surgeons and anaesthetists. Following a transplant children require life-long medical monitoring, plus immunosuppression to help prevent transplant rejection.
