Pediatric Hepatology

The main fields of interest are the diagnosis and treatment of the following diseases in the neonatal and pediatric age:

  • Acute/chronic liver disease
  • End-stage acute/chronic liver failure
  • Acute/chronic gastrointestinal diseases with or without organ failure
  • Multiple organ failure

The unit selects the candidates for liver transplantation, organizes the post-transplant follow up and, in close collaboration with the pediatric abdominal surgery team, arranges the medical follow up of patients undergoing hepatobiliary surgery, liver resection, and gastrointestinal surgery. ISMETT also treats patients from non-European countries.
