Cost of Liver Transplant

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.

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 liver transplant inGlobal Hospital Chennai

The equipment is good, modern. Doctors and attendants are attentive and highly qualified. I passed a survey course and a number of specialist consultations. At the time when I was there, I was advised not to rush into the operation, as the state of health is at the stage of improvement. If they were interested in pumping money from me, then they would recommend urgently to do it, which indicates their objectivity. The only problem with finding there was an unusual food for me. But this is someone who, like someone who loves spicy, peppery and a lot of seasonings.
