Pediatric Liver Metabolic Transplant Program at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital

Pediatric Liver Metabolic Transplant Program at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital

Experts from the Pediatric Liver Metabolic Transplant Program at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital discuss their interdisciplinary collaboration—and why it is so important in treating pediatric patients with inherited disorders of metabolism. The group consists of doctors and specialists from the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences, the Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute, the Division of Pediatric Hepatology, and the Division of Pediatric Nephrology and Hypertension. Close collaboration between physicians, clinicians, nutritionists, and social workers is essential to improve the long-term functional health of the children treated in the program. Weekly team meetings between the physicians facilitate the coordination of care, faster scheduling of appointments, and better decision-making for each patient.
