Liver Transplantation is a surgery in which a diseased liver in a patient is replaced by a healthy liver obtained from a live donor or a brain dead donor. At present, about 25,000 Liver Transplantations are needed in India annually, but approximately only 1200 to 1400 patients are able to get the benefit of this surgery. Each year, thousands of liver patients die as they wait for a donor or the transplant itself. Despite all of this, there is an upside trend. Since the last 9 years with accelerated growth in liver transplants over last 3 years.
