Show Notes

In this episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Drs. Peter Lu and Jennifer Lee talk to Dr. Evelyn Hsu about liver transplantation in children and how to become a pediatric transplant hepatologist.  We talk about what inspired her to become a transplant hepatologist and introduce the topic of pediatric liver transplantation, including its indications, contraindications, and the components of transplant evaluation.  We discuss the improvements in transplant outcomes over time and the new standards for a successful outcome. Finally, we talk about transplant hepatology fellowship training and what the Society of Pediatric Liver Transplantation (SPLIT) is doing to help educate GI trainees with an interest in liver transplantation.
