Cost of Liver Transplant

Despite a big difference in pricing, low or high cost of a liver transplant does not define quality or success rate of the procedure. Below you can find the average cost of liver transplant in a particular country which includes all the charges regarding a procedure (preoperative tests, a surgery, rehabilitation, accommodation).

The cost of liver transplant varies depending on the country a patient choses for this procedure. For instance, the cost of liver transplant surgery is:

Best Liver Transplant Hospitals

Bookimed works with the best liver transplant centers in the world, among them are centers located in Turkey, India, Israel, Germany, etc. All of them perform liver transplant surgery according to the strict international treatment protocols. It means that a procedure complies with world quality standards.

Best liver transplant hospitals in the world achieve 90-95% success rate.

The cost of liver transplant varies in different countries. But still, patients think that higher price means higher quality and success rate. It is a misleading criterion in choosing a hospital for a liver transplant.

Best country for liver transplant in the world is India. The procedure is 2-3 times cheaper compared with the leading European hospitals, but the success rate is even higher. The low price is explained by the following reasons:

  • Indian hospitals do not buy foreign drugs, they produce own ones. Their quality is the same as American medications.
  • General low pricing in India.
  • The country is considered to be the best place to have a liver transplant because the local doctors have a vast experience in performing the procedure. For instance, some Indian liver transplant surgeons have conducted over 4,000 liver transplants, German ones - only up to 500.

The success of the surgery depends not only on the country a patient chooses for a liver transplant but a doctor who performs this procedure. Best liver transplant surgeon in the world is Prof. Mohammed Rela. The doctor works in Indian Global Hospitals Group. This liver transplant specialist has performed the biggest number of the procedures - over 4,000. The Professor is the Guinness Book of Records for conducting a liver transplant for a 5-day child who is now a 21 years adult person.

Among other top liver transplant surgeons are:

  • Prof. Johann Pratschke who manages the liver transplant at Charite Center (Germany). The doctor has performed over 2,500 organ transplants together with his team;

Liver transplant process

Process of a liver transplant

Features of the liver transplant in the best world hospitals:

  • a patient and a donor come to a hospital
  • they undergo all the preoperative examinations
  • before the surgery, a patient receives a therapy with immunosuppressors which inhibits the immune system for better engraftment of the liver;
  • a surgery lasts 7-12 hours for a recipient, for a donor - 5-8 hours (blood transfusion needs to be provided);
  • a patient discharges from a hospital in 21 days, a donor - 1-2 weeks.

The main difficulty for a liver transplant abroad is to find a donor. In some cases, relatives of a patient refuse to become a donor because of the fear to get complications or even die. But there are no reasons to be afraid:

  • best rated liver transplant hospitals provide 100% survival rate for a donor
  • a donor’s liver completely recovers within 2 months, and a donor returns to a normal life in 2-3 weeks after surgery.

Best centers perform a liver transplant with up to 95% success rate, so a patient receives high chances to get rid of primary liver pathology and live a healthy life.

The patient underwent hair transplant

First of all, thanks to my coordinating doctor Maxim. Thanks to him, I came to this clinic. Everything went at the highest level. We met at the Airport, settled into the Hotel (excellent room), which is located 20 meters from the Clinic itself + everything was included tomorrow with a buffet that is located in the restaurant of the Hotel. The operation was easy and painless. The staff at the clinic is very attentive and caring. Upon completion, they were taken to the airport. I want to express my gratitude:  Doctor Cagatay Cebeci - was in touch with me 24/7 as well as in addition to the clinic, both on professional issues and on personal help.  Madame Safiye - conducted an inspection and came to check how the operation was going.  Secil and Sibel are professionals in their field, it was they who performed the hair transplant surgery, everything went quickly and easily. Two charismatic girls.  Thanks to all the staff, everyone was interested in how I was doing and whether everything looked fine with my hair. The driver made sure that I carefully sat down and got out of the car.
