[caption id="attachment_237357" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Jaypee Hospital Makes Liver Transplant History On National Organ Transplant Day[/caption]
Two brothers and a sister make their way to Jaypee Hospital all the way from Mongolia to undergo a unique liver transplant surgery, where both brothers will each give 30-35 percent of their livers to be transplanted into their sister. The 3-person transparent is also unique as all three persons involved in the 18 hour surgery are related. At least 4 teams of Jaypee Hospital doctors will be a part of the momentous transplant.
Live transplants are considered viable options for liver and kidneys. While every person is born with two kidneys, livers are capable of regeneration which takes around 2-4 weeks. As two donors will be giving parts of their respective livers to the recipient, it's likely that recovery time for both donors will be reduced.
