What's New?

We recently performed, for the first time in India, a simultaneous living donor liver and kidney transplant for a patient with a metabolic disorder (Hyperoxaluria)

We subsequently performed another simultaneous liver and kidney transplant in a patient with chronic renal disease in addition to end stage liver disease. She too made an uneventful recovery.

We recently performed the first Dual Lobe Living Donor Liver Transplant in India. This extremely complex operation involves removing portions of the livers of two related donors and transplanting both into one recipient. This becomes neccessary when the recipient is much larger than either donor and requires a larger liver mass than can be safely provided by either donor alone.

In 2007 we performed 92 living donor liver transplants. This makes us one of the five largest centers in the world for living donor liver transplantation.

We performed a living donor re-transplant in a patient who developed liver failure 18 months after a liver transplant due to hepatitis E. This is the first such re-transplant in India. This is a very rare procedure anywhere in the world. Most re-transplants use cadaver organs but due to shortage of such organs in India our patient did not have the time to wait for one in view of his rapidly failing liver.
