    The Late Effects Program at St. Louis Children's Hospital treats chronic or late-occurring medical conditions that persist or develop because of the cancer or its treatment. More than two-thirds of young adult survivors of childhood cancer eventually experience at least one “late effect” that can occur in any organ or system of the body and vary from person to person.

    Our mission is to provide comprehensive evaluation, treatment and care for children with all forms of liver disease, including those with end-stage or potentially fatal liver diseases requiring life-saving liver transplantation, or other major surgical procedures such as liver resection.

    St. Louis Children's Hospital has performed more than 400 lung and heart-lung transplants since 1990, making it the most active pediatric lung transplant program in the world.
