The liver transplant program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital was created in 1995 by transplant surgeon, Dr. Carlos Esquivel, who trained with Dr. Thomas Starzl in Pittsburgh in the 1980s. In the past 25 years, Stanford has performed over 800 liver transplants, and we currently care for 450 post-transplant patients. Our Liver Transplant program has performed 37 liver transplants annually on average over the past 3 years including technical variants and living donor liver transplants. We have done 7 heart-liver transplants, 6 kidney-liver transplants and 2 multivisceral transplants in the last 3 years. Our team includes a hepatology section with 6 faculty including 4 transplant hepatologists, 3 pioneer pediatric liver transplant surgeons who have contributed enormously in hepatobiliary surgery and transplantation, 15 advanced practice providers, 2 transplant social workers and 1 transplant pharmacist all specialized in the care of liver transplant patients. Our transplant outreach program additionally includes 10 sites in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, New Mexico and Hawaii.
