Pediatric Liver Disease Clinic

The Liver Disease Clinic at Floating Hospital for Children specializes in helping infants, children and adolescents who have a wide variety of liver, gallbladder and bile duct disorders. We provide a multidisciplinary approach to these complex disorders, working with Neonatology, Genetics, Pediatric Radiology, Pathology, Pediatric Dietitian, and other pediatric subspecialties to diagnose and treat children with liver disease. Liver conditions can range from mild to serious but they can all be quite stressful and worrisome to the patient and caregivers. We are committed to a family centered approach where we will partner with the family to treat the child not just the disease.
