Living donor liver evaluation is a three-part process, starting with a questionnaire and blood testing, followed by a multidisciplinary team evaluation and surgeon visit, and finally an anesthesia evaluation.
Donating a portion of your liver to another individual is a great act of kindness and can be life saving for the recipient. A liver transplant is a complex surgery for both the donor and the recipient. In order to effectively plan for the surgery and ensure the best possible outcomes, the Massachusetts General Hospital Liver Transplant Team evaluates living donors in a three-part process. Potential donors may choose to discontinue their evaluation at any point in the process, for any reason, with complete confidentiality. Typically, the Transplant Center and the recipient's insurance will cover the cost of the evaluation and surgery.
