Many times, the liver patients don't realize that they have to get the liver transplant done until it's too late. This initially makes the surgery too expensive for the chronic stages liver diseases. Due to the very high complexity of the operation, the cost of the transplant is high. The average cost of liver transplant in India is 20lakh but sometimes it is even Rs. 35 lakhs in some very complex cases. The cost may also depend on whether it is private or govt. hospital. Apart from the surgery, the patient has to pay for the medication given along with the liver transplant cost. The exact cost for liver transplant varies every year for every clinic. It is best to have a research before you plan to get the liver transplant and then choose your hospital.
