Biliary atresia is a liver condition that is present at birth and affects the bile ducts. When the ducts are blocked, bile does not flow to the gallbladder and small intestine, where it is needed to digest food. Infants and children with the condition are slow to gain weight and their skin looks yellow from jaundice.
The Biliary Atresia Program at Riley at IU Health provides multidisciplinary care to children with this liver condition. Our doctors work with other specialists through a monthly biliary atresia clinic, which is located in a single location at MSA 2 within the Riley Outpatient Center. Through our program, all specialty doctors and specialized nurses involved in treating biliary atresia come to see your child at the clinic.
Your child will receive care from a gastroenterologist, hepatologist, pediatric surgeon, dietitian and specialty research nurses. These doctors collaborate on patient care, participate in research and also provide education to families, which is an unusual combination for such a program.
Treatments for biliary atresia include:
Even with treatment, some children with biliary atresia still experience problems such as cirrhosis (scar tissue in the liver), bleeding, poor nutrition and poor brain function. Our specialists will work closely with your child to monitor and manage any or all of these conditions.
Our pediatric specialists provide patient- and family-centered care for most related conditions. The links below provide more specific information about some, but not all, of the conditions that we treat.
