Texas Children's Hospital named leader of pediatric organ transplants for 6th year

For the sixth consecutive year, Texas Children's Hospital in Houston has been named as the nation's leading hospital in pediatric organ transplants.

The designation is from the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network, which wrote that based on data from 2022, Texas Children's Hospital "successfully performed 99 transplants, outpacing all other children's hospitals by more than 20 complex surgeries." 

Larry Hollier, MD, the surgeon-in-chief and chair of the Texas Children's Hospital department of surgery, said in a Jan. 30 press statement that while he is proud of the hospital's volume of transplants, what he is more impressed by is his staff's success rate in conjunction with it. 

"Our patients need and deserve the very best," Dr. Hollier said. "Their outcomes are our top priority, and our pediatric transplant success rate is a testament to our commitment to them."

Last year, the hospital was also the first in the nation to launch a uterine transplant program for helping women with absolute uterine factor infertility.
