Recipient and donor assessment
Our transplant team will evaluate you and your donor to confirm that you are both 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 evaluate their suitability as a donor.
- This assessment is needed to exclude any chronic conditions like hepatitis B and C.
- Strict 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 evaluate the social and financial history of the donor’s family, to provide the necessary information for the ethics committee for approval.
