What is the process to have a liver transplant?

If you have end-stage chronic liver failure, you may need a liver transplant. The foremost step is deciding on a trusted transplant center. We suggest that you do thorough research and chose the center that has maximum survival rates. Your doctor may first evaluate your condition. This is done to draw the eligibility for your transplant.

Specific tests and procedures would be consulted. These include lab tests, heart tests, blood tests, counseling and more. Followed by this, you may have to wait for a donor. A deceased or living donor may come to your avail. On the availability of a donor, you will be admitted to the hospital. Finally, the surgery would be done. Post-surgical care will also be considered as you will have to stay admitted in the ICU for some time.

Can a person donate a portion of their liver?

Yes. A donor may only give away a small portion of their liver. A complete liver transplant can be done with a portion of the liver. It is possible because the liver is the only organ that can regenerate itself. In some cases, when the condition is severe, your doctor may suggest you replace your damaged liver with a completely new one. This is a case-specific situation and depends entirely on the condition of the patient.
