Why should you choose our World Class Hospitals in India for Liver Transplant Surgery
What About the Donor?
For a Transplant Surgery There are Two Types of Donors.
Living Donor – As the name indicates, a living donor is a living and active person. In this case the liver donation is possible from a close relative of the recipient.
Cadaveric Donor- A Cadaveric Donor is a brain dead person (refers to the irreversible end of all brain activity and the patient is on advanced life support system) . In this case a donation is possible from a person whose family wishes to donate the person’s organs before discontinuing life support.
Important Note: In India there is long waiting list for Cadaveric Donors since cadaveric organs are not frequently available and the wait for such donors may extend to several months. For Overseas patients, only living donor liver transplants are recommended, which requires them to bring a healthy, willing donor (a close relative or family member only) with them when they come for a transplant. Cadaveric transplants are not practical for overseas patients. Moreover the success rate for Living Donor Liver Transplantation is more than the Cadaveric Donor Liver Transplantation.
Who can be a Liver Donor ?
Liver Transplant is regulated at hospitals in India under the Transplantation of Human Organs Acts and Rules. Each hospital has a legally constituted Transplant Authorisation Committee that scrutinises and approves the cases. The patient will have to come with a live, related donor and present the required documents for approval. The Indian Organ Transplant Act does not permit the transplants between unrelated donors, unless approved by the Transplant Committee.

Madrakhimova from Uzbekistan shares her experience of coming to India for liver transplant that saved her life.
I am 26-year-old liver transplant patient from Uzbekistan and suffered fromLiver Cirrhosis. In Uzbekistan we do not have world-class facilities. They simply do not have that level of tertiary care. There is also the matter of cost. Going to Russia for this surgery would have cost me about $100,000.
I searched internet and found SafeMedTrip in Delhi and they helped me so much and with in few days arranged three very good hospital options from me and teh cost was only it is about $ 30,000. Add $3,000 for local expenses and my relatives to stay and travel costs — it’s a huge bargain.
The hospital has a huge reputation that inspires confidence. And SafeMedTrip made it so easy for me to come to India and I thanks you so very much.Refer a Patient
