Liver Transplant by Apollo Hospitals

Liver Transplant

Liver transplantation is a replacement of diseased liver in a patient with end stage liver failure with a healthyorgan. Both adults & children can undergo liver transplantation. Hepatitis related liver cirrhosis, acute liver failures & even those complicated by unresectable liver tumors can be effectively treated by liver transplantation. Living donor liver transplantation is a safe option with high success rates & is absolutely safe for the donors. Particularly for sick patients where waiting can be perilous, we strongly recommend living donor liver transplantation.

Pancreas, small bowel and multi-visceral transplantation

Pancreas transplantation is for people with difficult to control diabetes who also have renal failure. It is aimed to ‘cure’ diabetes and in the long run it will protect the transplanted kidney from being affected by diabetes and even reverse neuropathy and prolong their life.

Small bowel transplantation is for people with intestinal failure from either surgical cause or medical cause. This patient population, if not treated appropriately, will additionally develop liver and or kidney failure. They may need combination of liver, small intestine and kidney transplantation (multi-visceral transplantation). Apollo is the first one to perform complex multi-visceral transplantation on liver, pancreas & small bowel. We have a successful on-going cadaver organ transplantation program which make these type of complex operations possible. We have the doctors and the technology available to optimize their care in all aspects.
