Liver Transplant by Dr. Anand Khakhar Bringing Hopes To Dimming Lives


What is a liver transplant and why is it executed?

Simply put ‘liver transplantation’ is a surgical operation to get rid of a diseased or injured liver and update it with a healthy one from another person, also known as a donor. In adults, the most common reason to undergo liver transplant is ‘cirrhosis’. That is because of numerous different type of disease which damages the healthy liver cells and replaces them with scar tissues.

What are the signs of advanced liver disease or cirrhosis?

People who have advanced liver disease may have many of the following problems:

  • Jaundice - yellowing of the skin or eyes
  • Itching
  • Dark, tea-colored urine
  • Ascites - an abnormal amount of fluid in the abdomen
  • Vomiting of blood
  • Tendency to bleed
  • Encephalopathy - mental confusion, forgetfulness

What are the types of liver transplants?

There are two types of liver transplants – living donor and deceased donor transplants. In the case of the 'living donor' liver transplant, a portion of a liver from the living donor is removed and transplanted in the body of the recipient, it usually takes about 6 to 8 weeks for the liver to regenerate. In deceased donor liver transplants, the donor is often a brain dead person whose brain dead has been damaged & therefore the person has become brain dead and declared legally dead.

Why international prefer liver transplant in India

India is the best country for liver transplantation in the world. The country is most renowned to opt for liver transplant procedures. Not only the medical facilities here are up to the mark but the liver transplant cost in India is quite reasonable. The method is two-three times less expensive in comparison with the leading international hospitals, but the success rate is even higher. The low cost is explained through the following reasons:

  • Indian hospitals do no buy foreign drugs, they produce own ones. Their quality is similar to American medicines.
  • Standard low pricing in India.
  • The country is taken into consideration to be the best place to have a liver transplant because the local doctors have sizeable experience in performing the surgery. As an instance, some Indian liver transplant surgeons have carried out over 4,000 liver transplants, German ones - only up to 500.
