How long is the length of stay for Liver Transplantation?
Normally, Liver Transplantation requires 2-3 weeks in hospital. Post operative check up will be done afterward.

How is the surgery performed?
Liver transplants usually take from 6-12 hours. During the operation, surgeons will remove the patient liver and will replace it with the donor liver. Several tubes are put in the patient body. These tubes are necessary to help the patient body carry out certain functions during the operation and for a few days afterward.

What is the post-surgical care?
After surgery, patient is taken to the Intensive Care Unit to monitor very closely. Patient will be on artificial respiration machine and will have endotracheal tube bringing oxygen to the lungs. Once the patient wakes up and can breathe alone, the tube and respirator are removed. The patient will have several blood tests, X-ray films, and ECGs during the hospital stay. Blood transfusions may be necessary. The patient leaves the ICU once fully awake, able to breathe effectively, and has a normal temperature, blood pressure, and pulse, usually after about 3-4 days. Before being discharged, patient will learn Strict schedule of medications and steps of monitoring own blood pressure and pulse.
