Department Achievements

Department of HPB Surgery and Liver Transplantation is being increasingly recognized in both patient and medical circles as a destination for high quality patient care and academics.

The liver transplant program has grown in strength with around hundred transplants are being performed every year for 3 consecutive years. The preioperative survival of patients is more than 90% which is comparable to best centers in the world.

The outcome of live liver donors has been outstanding with major complications rate less than 4% , among the best in the world.

About 20% of transplant performed are emergency transplant for patients with acute or acute on chronic liver failure which is a rarity in any new programe and big achievement for the team.

Pediatric liver transplant program has been successfully established with more than 40 children have ben transplanted. Nearly half of these children needed emergency transplant for acute liver failure which is a big challenge for any team.

Department has keen interest in developing deceased donor liver transplant (DDLT) programe and has performed highest number of DDLT in North India. We have set new trends in the country by transporting organs from distant cites such as Jaipur, Indore, Lucknow, Chandigargh and successfully transplanting. We have trained teams from other institutes like SMS Jaipur, JIPMER Pondicherry, IGIMS Patna and SGPGI Lucknow. We have successfully started liver transplant programe at SMS Jaipur this year thus setting a new trend in the country which will open doors for other public sector hospitals to positively think about starting transplant program.

The clinical and reaserch work done in the department has been published in high impact factor journals. The department had one of the highest numbers of abstracts in IASG ,Puduchery and a randomized controlled trial carries out in department on technique of back table perfusion was awrded as best paper in oral presentation and was further accepted for publication in Transplantation.
