Liver Transplant in Pakistan – A Milestone Achieved


Liver transplant is a treatment option for people with liver failure and for some people with liver cancer who have significant complications due to end-stage chronic liver disease. The chronic liver failure may be caused by a variety of conditions. Among other causes, Hepatitis B & C viruses remain the major cause of cirrhosis leading to liver failure and liver transplant. Cirrhosis is so far the most frequently cited reason for a liver transplant.

It is estimated that over 2.5 million people in Pakistan require Liver Transplantation at any stage during their treatment. The availability of sustainable and quality Liver Transplantation & Hepatobiliary surgery services in Pakistan is a great benefit to the local population, which previously had no option than to go overseas for the treatment.

Today, Pakistan is among the World’s leading nations who have been successfully providing Liver Transplantation services to their people in conformity with International quality & patient safety standards. It is a landmark achievement in Pakistan’s medical history that such a complex and advanced surgical treatment has been provided at Shifa International Hospital Islamabad to Pakistanis by utilizing the expertise of Pakistani healthcare professionals.
