Pediatric kidney and liver transplant

"Since performing the first pediatric kidney transplant in Germany in 1970 and the first pediatric liver transplant in 1978, the MHH has established itself as one of the most experienced and largest pediatric transplant centers in Germany and Europe, with pioneering achievements such as Professor Pichlmayr's development of split liver transplantation, which is now used worldwide. Kidney and liver transplantation, also in children, is today a standard therapy procedure for acute or chronic organ failure. In close interdisciplinary cooperation, especially with our colleagues of the Department of Pediatrics at the MHH, transplantation is offered for all common indications after appropriate evaluation of the cause of organ failure and assessment of the potential recipient's state of health. In addition to conventional transplantation of an organ referred via the waiting list, this also includes living donor transplantation. Over the past 50 years, more than 800 pediatric kidney transplants and more than 900 pediatric liver transplants have been performed at our hospital. Through further development of organ preservation, surgical techniques and drug therapy to prevent rejection, our department can offer you modern transplant surgery at the highest level.
