Recipient and donor assessment
Our transplant team will assess you and your donor in order to confirm that you are a suitable candidate for the liver transplant surgery.
- If you are a foreigner, your blood and imaging tests need to be repeated in Singapore to confirm your liver disease condition.
- Your donor will also undergo strict medical examination to assess his/her suitability.
- This assessment is necessary to exclude any chronic conditions such as Hepatitis B and C.
- Stringent blood and imaging tests, radiological examination, and psychosocial assessment will also be conducted.
An independent team of physicians, cardiologists, psychiatrists, dentists, nephrologists, and infectious disease physicians will carry out further assessment on your donor. Also, our transplant coordinator will assess the social and financial history of the donor’s family, in order to provide the necessary information for the ethics committee.
