A liver transplant is a surgical procedure that removes a liver that no longer functions properly and replaces it with a healthy liver from a deceased donor or a portion of a healthy liver from a living donor.
The process for liver transplant in children is similar to the process for adults. But because children with liver disease face unique challenges, it is important to have transplant surgeons with extensive experience in pediatric and adult liver transplantation.

Guests on the podcast are three Mayo Clinic transplant experts: Dr. Timucin Taner, a Mayo Clinic transplant surgeon, and Dr. Sara Hassan and Dr. Samar Ibrahim — both Mayo Clinic pediatric hepatologists.
