LIVER TRANSPLANT IN INDIA IS CHEAP AND SAFER NOW

Posted Jun 23 2013 11:16am
Liver transplants expensive but 95% life-saving " LUCKNOW: Three years ago, 48-year-old Rajesh Puri underwent a liver transplant after he was detected with chronic hepatitis C with cirrhosis of liver. He was diagnosed with the disease in 2004 and was on medication for the next five years. When his condition deteriorated in 2009, doctors advised a liver transplant. "There was no other way to save my life,'' said Rajesh who is now living a healthy life after his wife Rita donated part of her liver to save him. The liver transplant cost them Rs 25 lakh. Rajesh is not the only one to have faced extreme situation due to ill health. There are thousands others forced to undergo a liver transplant. The challenge with 90% of the liver diseases, say doctors, is that patients don't realise they have it until it's late. What's worse is that cost of treatment for liver ailments especially in later stages is exorbitant."
