The care of Liver failure and post liver transplant patients is a complex multidisciplinary exercise. Most often, it involves multiple consultations across specialties, that spreads over many days, and involves a lot of running around by the patients.

The Multidisciplinary Liver Board is a meeting of professionals with specialized expertise in taking care of the complex health needs of the pre- and post- liver transplant patients.

This will be a multidisciplinary meeting involving Liver Transplant Surgeons, Transplant Hepatologists, Liver transplant Anesthetists, Critical care specialists, Pulmonologists, Transplant Infectious disease specialists, Cardiologists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Nutritionists, Physiotherapists, Social workers and Transplant coordinators. All the issues related to Patients’ medical condition will be discussed and the best plan to address the issues will be formulated.
