Liver transplantation

Liver transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves replacing a diseased or damaged liver with a healthy one from a donor. The liver is an essential organ that performs many vital functions in the body, including filtering toxins from the blood, producing bile, and regulating blood sugar levels. Liver transplantation is typically recommended for patients with end-stage liver disease or liver failure, which can be caused by a range of conditions. During the liver transplantation procedure, the patient’s diseased liver is removed and replaced with a healthy liver from a donor. The new liver is then connected to the patient’s blood vessels and bile ducts, allowing it to function normally. Liver transplantation is a complex and highly specialised procedure that requires a team of experienced surgeons and medical professionals.
