Welcome! Thank you for showing interest in the Institute of Liver Transplant and HPB Surgery. Our programme at MGM Healthcare is driven by experienced doctors, advanced technology and medical equipment, and state-of-the-art facilities. All these culminate to serve one purpose alone, to provide patients with a better quality of life.
While the idea of a transplant can be frightening, it is a fairly routine surgery today, with close to 90% chance of survival in the first year. In fact, experienced doctors suggest transplant as a treatment option 80% of the time, given that patients fit the eligibility criteria. It is strongly believed that earlier the transplant, the better the outcomes. Be advised, after transplantation, regular follow-ups and lifelong immunosuppression are mandatory for the success of the transplant. With this, patients can return to leading a normal social, intellectual and sexual life. Having said that, research is ongoing to find an alternative to transplant and also, to do away with lifelong immunosuppression medicines. I hope to see this day soon.
