Liver Transplant Surgery

Liver, the largest organ of the body, requires liver transplant when it becomes diseased. The liver transplant surgeons will remove and replace part of the diseased liver with part of healthy liver. Any family member of the recipient can donate the healthy liver. The liver of the donor and recipient will regenerates again, but the shape and size will become different.
