The Process of liver donation for a living donor

Extensive evaluation

The donor undergoes a highly detailed physical and psychological evaluation, basis which it is determined whether he can undergo the surgery without any side-effect, physical or otherwise. Post evaluation, only those living donors are selected, who we feel, can easily get back to their normal lives post surgery.

The procedure involved in liver donation

During surgery, an incision is made in the abdomen, through which, a portion of the healthy liver, along with it’s blood vessels and bile ducts is removed.

Living donor requires almost a week’s hospitalization. There are restrictions on lifting weight during hospitalization, and also for a few weeks post surgery. The type of work you do, will determine how soon you can get back to it. The same will be explained to you during your discussion and evaluation process with your co-ordinator and surgeon at Liver Helpline India.
