There is no surgical treatment for hepatitis B.
If you have advanced liver damage because of hepatitis and your condition becomes life-threatening, you may need a Reference liver transplant.
In rare cases, acute hepatitis B progresses rapidly to liver failure, a deadly condition called Reference fulminant hepatitis. For people who develop this condition, a liver transplant is the only treatment choice.
