Healthy Living: Liver Transplants

Every year in America, hundreds of people die while waiting for a liver transplant.

You may not have known this, but the liver is the body’s only organ that can regenerate.

While it’s not commonly done, transplant experts say lives can be saved through living liver transplants.

One patient’s story in today’s Healthy Living.

Because the donor’s liver is functioning up until the time of transplant, experts say the recipient can benefit from improved long-term outcomes and can have a quicker recovery.
