To help the patient get a thorough understanding and prepare them mentally for the procedure, our transplant team performs general health examination, psychological evaluation, legal and financial counseling sessions with the patient.

Donor assessment is a mandatory process to ensure the liver donor is in a good state of health and the donation will not compromise his/her wellbeing. Our multidisciplinary team performs a series of tests and scans to ensure the optimum physical and mental health of the donor.
