Sahyadri Liver Clinic

The “Liver Clinic” is our endeavour to streamline care of patients • Hepato-Pancreatic Biliary (HPB) diseases. Here all the expertise required for the care of such patients is available simultaneously. Patients can consult the Transplant Surgeon, Hepatologist, Nutritionist and PhySCOTherapist simultaneously thus reducing the time required to evaluate a patient, formulate and implement the treatment plan and also modify the treatment depending on the response seen during follow up. This makes the treatment experience fast, more efficient and cost effective.

Liver Transplantation

Simply put, Liver Transplantation is an operation in which the diseased liver is removed and replaced with a healthy liver. We perform liver transplantation for adults as well as children and both live related donor as well as cadaver donor liver transplant. The common indications for liver transplant, in adults are cirrhosis, acute liver failure or liver cancer, and in children are developmental problems of the bile ducts (biliary atresia). Our doctors have been part of several innovative procedures such as domino, swap & ABO incompatible liver transplants and multiorgan transplants such as liver & kidney transplant, kidney & pancreas and “India’s first” heart & liver transplant.

Hepato- Pancreatic Biliary (HPB) Surgery & GI Oncology

Hepato- Pancreatic Biliary (HPB) Surgery is complex. However, we at SCOT are committed to excel in providing current standard of care diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients with HPB diseases. Out Team specialises in surgical treatment of benign conditions as well as malignant disorders of the liver, bile ducts, gall bladder and pancreas. We also offer complex procedures for cancers and benign disorders of the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine (colon). The Team tailors the treatment to each patient’s disease and requirement and offers allied modalities such as radio-frequency ablation (RFA), trans-arterial chemo-embolization (TACE), trans-arterial radio-embolization (TARE), portal vein embolization (PVE), etc whenever indicated.

Acute Liver failure

Acute liver failure (ALF) is a serious condition requiring intensive monitoring and urgent specialist care and which untreated is almost always fatal. We at SCOT have established a dedicated ALF service for rapid response, stabilization and supervised transportation of these patients to our centre. Our “Liver team” is geared to provide the required medical, intensive and if indicated surgical care (liver transplant) for these patients with a high success rate.

Medical Gastroenterology & Hepatology

Our Medical experts treat viral hepatitis, autoimmune and other liver diseases routinely and also have the expertise to manage patients with bleeding into the gut (blood vomiting). Outcomes after liver transplantation depend not only on the surgical expertise but also upon the condition of the patient before surgery. Our Liver surgeons and Physicians work together to optimise the patient medically as much as preoperatively so that the outcomes after transplant are the best possible.

Holistic Liver Health

Our Liver Team focuses not only on the surgical and medical management but also on the holistic improvement in the patient condition. We closely monitor the nutritional, physical fitness and psychological state of our patients and provide support whenever required so that they are in the best possible condition to undergo the operation. Patients who do not require transplant or are unfortunately not candidates for transplant also benefit from our care. Our teams suggest needful lifestyle modifications so as to either alter the course of the disease process or improve the quality of life as much as possible.
