Patient Testimonial for Liver Transplant

Testimonial by Mrs. Pushpa Adil

Treatment for: Liver Cirrhosis
Treated by: Dr. Naveen Polavarapu
Patient location: Hyderabad

Liver cirrhosis is a condition characterized by scarring of the liver tissue, often resulting from long-term liver damage and inflammation. Common causes include excessive alcohol consumption, chronic viral hepatitis (such as hepatitis B or C), fatty liver disease, or autoimmune conditions. Symptoms of cirrhosis may not appear until the liver damage is significant and might include fatigue, weakness, jaundice, swelling in the abdomen or legs, easy bruising or bleeding, and confusion. Diagnosis involves medical history review, physical examination, blood tests to assess liver function, imaging studies, and liver biopsy. Treatment focuses on managing symptoms, preventing complications, and addressing the underlying cause.

Liver transplant surgery is considered in advanced cases of cirrhosis where the liver is severely damaged and treatment options are limited. This procedure allows the affected individuals to resume normal liver function, improving their quality of life and, in many cases, increasing their life expectancy. However, there are risks and potential complications associated with liver transplantation, such as organ rejection, infection, bleeding, or post-surgical complications. Patients considering liver transplant should discuss the benefits and potential risks with their healthcare provider to understand the implications of the procedure.

Mrs. Pushpa Adil from Hyderabad successfully underwent Liver Transplant Surgery for Liver Cirrhosis at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Naveen Polavarapu, Senior Consultant Gastroenterologist, Liver Specialist & Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopist & Endosonologist.
