Liver transplant is not new in India. It has a history of about 38 years in the country and a spectacular number of people who emerges absolutely fit and fine from the process.

The patient and the patient’s family are completely filled out on the details and the requirement of the procedure.

In the case of a live a donor a part of the liver is taken away from a living and a willing donor and is implanted in the patient’s body. After a while the livers in both the donor’s and the recipient’s body generates to its normal size.

After three months he or she can even resume strenuous activities like lifting weights etc.
