Transplantation of liver in India

Liver transplantation

In India, medicine, and especially organ transplant services, is so developed that this country is considered as the Mecca of world transplantology. It operates a large number of clinics that perform rather complex operations on heart, kidney, liver, lung, etc.

The benefits of liver transplant in India are:

  • the vast experience of the Indian medical school;
  • high qualification of transplant doctors;
  • developed service and attentive attitude towards patients;
  • the price level is much lower in comparison with the leading European and Asian clinics.

In what cases is a liver transplant necessary?

With the development of pathology, when the liver no longer fulfills its functions: being a natural filter of the organism; the synthesis of vitally important proteins; toxins are not eliminated, liver failure develops, etc. In such a situation, the only method of treatment capable of preserving health and life to the patient, is a liver transplantation.

Indications for liver transplantation in India are diseases, in neglected form, such as:

  • Cirrhosis of the liver;
  • Hepatitis of all known forms;
  • Sclerosing cholangitis;
  • Wilson's disease;
  • Oncological formations in the liver;
  • Atresia of the bile duct;
  • Hemochromatosis.

Before transplantion of the lobe of the liver, patient must undergo a comprehensive examination for the implementation of such an intervention. He provides a history of the disease to the selected clinic. If the results of the survey are old, it is necessary to repeat it.

How safe is liver transplantation in Indian clinics?

Liver transplantation in Indian clinics

The clinics that provide this type of services are equipped with the most modern equipment, and the doctors use exclusively advanced methods of surgical intervention in their practice.

Among the technologies used, it is worth mentioning:

  • Modern modular-type operating boxes for liver transplantation operations;
  • The use of robotic and laparoscopic (allowing to perform the operation through a small incision) techniques;
  • The use of automated systems in transplantology, minimizing the risk of a surgeon's error.

In addition to general practice, large hospitals are engaged in scientific activities. They have whole research centers, which develop new and improve the available methods of liver transplantation.

An important factor is the presence in the clinics of India intensive care rooms, equipped with the latest technology, where patients undergo postoperative rehabilitation period.

Thanks to all this, the success of the surgery for liver transplantation is on average 95% for the patient, and 100% for the donor.

Given the peculiarities of Indian legislation, which forbids the use of a dead person's organ for transplantation in the treatment of citizens of other states, transplantation is possible only from a donor who is related to the patient. The legal aspect is that the family relationship must be documented.

How much does a liver transplant cost in India?

In addition to the high level of development of medical services, the most significant factor is the cost of liver transplantation in India, which attracts patients from all over the world. On average, the cost of liver transplantation in India, followed by post-operative care, is about $ 40,000, while for a similar service in clinics located in Israel or the European Union the patient will pay an amount of about $ 300,000.
