Liver Transplant Treatment Hospitals in Hyderabad
Liver Transplant is a major operation that takes place only in a specialized transplant center. During a Liver Transplantation, the surgeon removes the diseased liver and replaces it with a healthy one. The patient having end-stage liver disease can only be treated by a Liver Transplant. It is of mainly two types: DECEASED Donor Liver Transplant (DDLT), and LIVE Donor Liver Transplant (LDLT).
For most transplants the livers come from donors who have died. This type of Donor is called as DECEASED Donor. Sometimes, a healthy person donates part of his or, her liver for close relatives this is called as LIVING Donor. All donated Livers of Deceased/ Living donors are tested before subjecting to transplant surgery. The testing makes sure that the donor’s liver should work as it should, matches the patient’s blood type, and is of right size, so it has the best chance of working in the body.
