Welcome to MGM Healthcare’s Institute of Liver Transplant & HPB Surgery
MGM Healthcare, a 400-bedded quaternary care hospital in the heart of Chennai city, proudly introduces its Institute of Liver Transplantation and HPB Surgery. Spearheaded by one of India’s leading liver transplant surgeons Dr Selvakumar Naganathan as its Director, the institute has been set-up with the vision to utilise the latest in technology, innovation and medical protocols to treat diseases of the liver, pancreas and biliary system. This comprehensive programme offers preventive, medical, interventional and surgical treatment of these diseases.
Of these is liver transplantation, also called hepatic transplantation, recommended for patients in end-stage chronic liver failure who have shown no response to other treatment. Liver transplants are performed with either a living donor, where a portion of the liver is donated, or a deceased organ donor.
Besides the treatment of hepatopancreaticobiliary conditions and transplantations, our unit also supports combined transplantations, like liver+kidney and liver+heart transplants. Once a patient is recommended for liver transplant, they are registered with TRANSTAN and NOTTO and are put on the organ waiting list, where there is preferential organ allotment.
Following the latest protocols and supported by advanced technology, our experienced team of hepatologists and transplant surgeons are here to help you manage and treat any disease or condition of the hepato-pancreatico-biliary system to greatly improve your quality of life.
