- The Esophageal Atresia Treatment Program (EAT) at Children’s Hospital Boston is the only center in the world that offers advanced and effective surgical treatment of esophageal atresia (EA) and the associated condition tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). Surgeons in our program use a technique called the Foker Process to stimulate the upper and lower ends of the esophagus to grow so they could be joined together.

We see over 3,000 children each year in our sleep clinics and sleep laboratoriesand every aspect of what we do is designed specifically for children.

Our services are tailored to your child’s individual needs and include extensive home visits, outpatient clinics and inpatient consultation to meet a range of various needs.
- The Liver Transplant Programat Children’s is an integral part of the Liver Tumor Program at Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center.
