The transplant operation

A liver transplant is an operation to remove a diseased liver and replace it with a healthy one. There are benefits and risks for you to consider before you have a liver transplant. Your doctor will explain the benefits and risks of a liver transplant to you so you can make an informed decision about whether to go ahead.

Make sure you ask questions if you’re unsure about anything so you understand what a liver transplant operation involves, and what you’ll need to do afterwards to give your operation the best chance of success.
