Living donor liver transplantation is well developed in India; experience of living donor liver transplantation has made significant impact on the techniques and approach to liver resection for non-transplant GI surgeons. There are differences the way surgeons with or without liver transplantation experience approaches the patient for liver resection. Liver transplantation positively affects the management of patient requiring liver resection in terms of techniques and preoperative and postoperative management. Visiting a liver transplant centre by those not having liver transplantation experience may help them to improve and expand their field of liver surgery.
