Liver Transplant is a rare option, and many people die while on the transplant list. While most HCV+ liver transplants are from cadavers, we present some information below about living donor transplants as well. 

Also take a look at information for organ donors here.

After a liver transplant, HCV+ recipients still will have HCV, and will need to go through a difficult treatment which can take over a year. Otherwise the new liver will soon get infected.

Mike MacDonald talks Family and Hepatitis C. Straight talk about what it’s like.

A doctor from India contracted HCV through a needle-stick injury. She received a liver transplant, but it failed. She received a second one and it was successful, giving her the gift of many more years with her family.
