Organ Transplant Surgery

Below listed are a few Organ Transplant Surgeries:

Liver Transplant
  • Brief: Liver transplant is the replacement of a diseased liver with a healthy liver from another person. The most commonly used technique is Orthotopic transplantation, in which the native liver is removed and replaced by the donor organ in the same anatomic location as the original liver. Liver transplantation is a viable treatment option for end-stage liver disease and acute liver failure. An entire liver may be transplanted, or just a section. Because the liver is the only organ in the body able to regenerate; a transplanted portion of a liver can rebuild to normal capacity within weeks. A donor who has recently died and has not had liver injury can be a perfect example of a Liver Donor.  Sometimes a healthy person will donate part of his or her liver to a patient. For example, a parent may donate to a child. This kind of donor is called a Living donor, in such cases the liver can re-grow itself and both people usually end up with fully working livers after a successful transplant.
