Department of Liver Transplant, Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad
Yashoda Hospitals’ Institute of Liver Transplant deals with a wide range of liver diseases through various forms of treatment procedures including liver transplants. A liver transplant is a major surgical intervention that can be done only in specialized transplant centers. This procedure involves the removal of a non-functioning or diseased liver and is replaced by a healthy liver from a deceased donor or a piece of a liver from a living donor (since the liver can grow back). All donated organs including the liver are tested before subjecting it to transplant surgery. The testing is crucial as it helps the surgeons to make sure that the donor’s liver is healthy and compatible with the receiver and that it will function well.
Usually, a transplant is suggested at the end stage of a chronic liver disease where the patient’s liver is beyond repair. If a liver transplant is recommended, the integrated liver care team of Yashoda Hospital’s Liver Transplant Department will evaluate the recipient as well as the donor thoroughly before performing the transplant. Several investigations are done to ensure the fitness of the recipient and the donor. Other vital organs such as the heart, lungs, kidney, and all others should be in good shape before the transplant. The team of surgeons and specialists involved in planning the transplant must give a medical fitness clearance, and only then will the plan be taken ahead.

The department includes a multidisciplinary liver transplant team and dedicated liver intensive care units (LICU) that help us accomplish successful results in complex surgeries.
