Shalby Hospitals announces a Centre for Liver Disease & Transplantation in Ahmedabad

Posted On: 2018-07-07 09:43:11

Shalby Hospitals, which operates a chain of multispecialty hospitals across India, with an aim to provide access to life-saving liver transplants for those in need, has launched a Centre for Liver Disease and Transplant in its SG Highway, Ahmedabad facility. The hospital now has the expertise for all types of liver transplants including deceased donor liver transplants, living donor liver transplants, for adults as well as children, elective as well as emergency.

The team at Shalby recently carried out the oldest liver transplant in Gujarat, as 80-year old braindead Surat donor gave life to the patient in Ahmedabad suffering from end stage liver disease. The liver was carried through a through a green corridor from Surat to Ahmedabad. Mr Kalyansinh from Udaipur, on the other hand, got a successful living donor liver transplant at the centre.

The surgery team consisted of Dr. Anand K Khakhar, Dr. Vinay Kumaran, Dr.Bhavin Vasavada, Dr.Hardik Patel, along with other team members.

It has been reported that every year 200,000 Indians die with liver disease recorded as the cause of death. It is estimated that 25,000 to 30,000 of them could have been saved by a liver transplant. However, the actual number of liver transplants done every year is less than one-tenth of this.

Liver transplantation is a relatively recent development in India and it became a regular procedure with reliable results only in the last 10 years. Moreover, due to shortage of donors, most liver transplants have been living donor liver transplants in which a family member of the patient donates part of the liver to the patient.

Dr Anand Khakhar said, "The occasional transplants done in a few centres in Ahmedabad were either deceased donor transplants or were done by visiting surgeons from high volume centres in Delhi or Chennai. In such circumstances, Shalby's initiative is a blessing for liver patients in and around Gujarat".

Earlier, patients who needed a liver transplant had to travel to Mumbai, Delhi or Chennai for the same. Also, many less enterprising patients died because of the lack of adequate liver transplant services in the state. To fill this gap in healthcare delivery, Shalby Hospitals decided to develop a liver transplant program at the SG Road facility in Ahmedabad, and they plan to eventually develop such programs at other Shalby Hospital branches too, including one to be launched in the immediate future in Jaipur, Rajasthan.

Talking about what leads to the need for liver transplant Dr. Vinay Kumaran stated, "Alcohol consumption is just one of the reasons that can lead to liver damage. Hepatitis B and C too can cause liver cirrhosis as well as liver cancer. In fact, the most common cause of chronic liver disease now is NASH (Non-Alcoholic-Steato-Hepatitis). Moreover, a fatty liver can develop due to poorly controlled diabetes, being overweight, taking an unhealthy diet with too much of carbohydrate (in other words a typical Gujarati diet) and not getting enough exercise. If the fatty liver is not detected and treated, the liver disease progresses to cirrhosis. And there is an increased risk of liver cancer even before cirrhosis develops".
