India is one of the top medical tourism destinations in the world.

Liver transplant is one of the most popular procedures medical tourists visit India for. 

Liver transplant in India costs much cheaper as compared to developed nations like US, UK or Canada. 

Laws related to organ donors vary from country to country. In India there are certain requirements that need to be fulfilled before a liver transplant can be done for patients from foreign country. 

Below are the few prerequisites for liver transplant in India:
  • As per Indian law, liver donor needs to be relative of the patient therefore donor also need to travel along with the patient for liver transplant. 
  • The patient will have to provide documents/certificate from their local authorities to certify the  relationship.  
  •  The relatives have to be of the first degree i.e. Mother, father, sister, brother, children or spouse
  • This certificate will have to be endorsed by the Embassy of the respective country. The hospital will forward these documents to the DMER- Directorate of Health Services who give the final sanction for the transplant.
  • Blood group of the recipient and donor should match.
  • The recipient and donor will need to undergo Basic medical examination to assess their medical status
Apart from the above mentioned things, listed below may be required by the liver transplant surgeon:
  • Information like age, blood group, height and weight of both recipient and donor.
  • Medical reports of the patient like USG findings on Portal venous system and liver, Alpha Feto Protein and 2D echo report.
