Thousands of patients across India suffer from liver diseases – be it cirrhosis or liver failure. Very often, they get to the stage where the only form of cure and hope is a liver transplant.
Once a portion of the liver is donated, the rest will grow back to near-normal size within a few weeks, making liver transplantation from living donors a very safe form of treatment.
Liver problems can be caused by fatty liver damage (NASH), alcohol, drugs, and some metabolic disorders.
