Living liver donation

What are the risks to the living donor?

All I can tell you is my daughter was my living donor. We checked out various hospitals before deciding on where to have the surgery.
What you would want to ask is their statistics for donor mortality and complications. Yes, there is a chance of death, as with any surgery.

BTW: My daughter's liver had entirely regrown by 3 months post tp.She bounced back fast.
