The Pediatric Liver Transplant Process
There are three stages to the transplant process. All pediatric liver transplant patients can expect to progress through the following phases:

- The Surgery
- The Recovery
The pediatric liver transplant process varies slightly from the adult liver transplant process, however all transplant patients and caregivers may benefit from the same basic information, regardless of age.
