Liver transplant surgery through WorldMed Assist is within your financial means. We work with exceptional hospitals inside and outside the US.

We are the only US company that has been able to bring relief through to people in the US and Canada by arranging live liver donor transplants in premier locations. Our patients have been featured on ABC News, WorldMed Assist can only facilitate live liver transplants. This means that every recipient needs to find a suitable donor willing to donate part of their liver. In the countries where we provide liver transplants, it is illegal to do transplants, including liver transplants, on foreigners unless they bring a liver transplant donor. We strictly adhere to these regulations and cannot make any exceptions.
Quality liver transplant surgery is available in the following countries:
We also provide information on costs:
Liver transplant waiting times
Currently, more than 17,000 people are on the waiting list for a liver transplant in the US. We have been able to get patients from first contact to life saving surgery in a matter of 3 weeks.
Liver transplant costs
In addition to reducing waiting times, WorldMed Assist can also reduce the cost dramatically. Whereas costs in the US are often in excess of $350,000, costs for liver transplant in India will be less than $60,000.
Liver transplant preparation
Before you undergo surgery, we need to get all of the pertinent records of the recipient. We can tell you exactly what those records are. Your records will allow the doctors to medically qualify you. Next to the donor qualifying medically, the requirement of having a donor that is closely related to the recipient is the most important requirement. The medical requirements are that the donor is a family member between 18 and 65 years old and that the blood group is suitable. Additional medical requirements will be discussed in person. Both recipient and donor will go through quite extensive testing prior to leaving. WorldMed Assist will guide you through the needed tests quickly. In addition to the medical tests, there also are many legalities that need to be fulfilled that are beyond the requirements for other types of surgeries. Again, WorldMed Assist can quickly assist you in gathering the correct paperwork.
Liver transplant preparation
After your preparationl, you and your donor will go through further testing. You will both also receive special diets to strengthen you for surgery. The surgery is of high risk and you will need your strength.
Liver transplant surgery
The surgery itself is complex and can take up to 19 hours to perform. Right after surgery both donor and recipient will be in separate ICU’s. The recipient will spend many days there. The donor is usually moved to a regular hospital room much quicker.
Liver transplant recovery
The recovery can be 1-2 months, depending on the specific circumstances. WorldMed Assist will make all the arrangements for you.
