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.

Fast Track to Recovery Post Organ Transplant Patient recovers faster and was discharged on 3rd day of Surgery, which is a rare feat

Sahyadri Hospitals’ has always believed in constantly innovating treatments to ensure the best care possible to all patients. Cutting edge pre and postoperative care help speedy recovery and improve cost efficiency. The hospital recently conducted a liver transplant on a 62 year old male suffering from end stage liver cirrhosis with liver cancer. With the newer, internationally approved measures and meticulous pre – operative and post – operative procedures, the patient was able to be discharged on the third day after the surgery. This ensured that the cost of the surgery was brought down considerably as well.

Liver transplants are usually quite lengthy. However, by using cutting edge world class transplant facilities and procedures, Sahyadri Hospitals’ Liver Transplant Team made sure that the patient was very well prepared physically, mentally and nutritionally prior to the surgery. Sahyadri Hospitals were thus able to shorten the duration of stay in the hospital which also reduced the cost of surgery.

The 'fast-track approach', however, is not for all. It is used only in carefully selected patients. In addition to faster recovery, fast-track approach also helps in slashing the cost of surgery, said doctors.

The Liver Team believed that the patient would recover fastest when at home. They ensured that progress reports were sent twice a day. The pre surgery protocols and post-operative care for the patient that were put in place made it possible for the patient to be discharged soon after the surgery. With our advanced infrastructure, latest technology and internationally approved procedures it is more becoming easy to ensure fast and safe treatments for our patients.

The surgery was performed at Sahyadri Speciality Hospital Deccan Gymkhana by a team comprising Multi-organ Transplant surgeons – Dr Bipin Vibhute, Dr. Sharan Narute, Dr. Dinesh Zirpe, Dr Anurag Shrimal & Dr Gaurav Gupta, Transplant anaesthetist Dr Manish Pathak, Hepatlogist & Gatsroenterologist Dr. Sandeep Kulkarni, Asst. Surgeon Dr. Abhijeet Mane, Transplant coordinators – Mr Arun Ashokan & Mr Rahul Tambe & Medical Social Worker - Mrs Sharmila Padhye.

Liver transplant is among the most expensive surgical procedures being performed. Our vision is to make clinical care patient centric & affordable without compromising on its quality so that it can benefit many more people in India. We, believe that Fast Tracking is the way to go so that we can reduce the hospital stay and hence the cost of transplant. Using Fast Tracking surgery our Transplant Team could discharge most of our patients (approx. 90%) on day 5 of transplant Surgery.

For the First time in Western India, Sahyadri Hospitals conducts Kidney & Pancreas Transplant and Liver Transplant simultaneous

Sahyadri Hospitals have successfully conducted kidney & pancreas transplant and liver transplant simultaneously on different patients on 16th June 2017 at Sahyadri Speciality Hospital Deccan Gymkhana. For the first time in Western India, a single centre has performed kidney & pancreas transplant and liver transplant simultaneously on different patients. This was the second kidney and pancreas transplant conducted in the state of Maharashtra and also marked the 50th liver transplant by Sahyadri Hospitals.

Kidney and pancreas were transplanted to a 27 year old who was suffering from renal failure and severe diabetes which had damaged his kidney, while the liver was transplanted to a 62 year old patient who was suffering from chronic liver disease.

Diabetes is one of the most common problems in India and can affect various organs. Replacing kidney and pancreas is one of the most useful solution, however, pancreas transplant are still rare in India. Simultaneous Kidney-Pancreas transplant is an operation to replace kidney and pancreas at the same time in a patient who has kidney failure and also suffers from diabetes, needing very high insulin dose to control sugars.

This surgery eliminates problems by optimally controlling sugar levels and by protecting the transplanted kidney from the adverse effects of diabetes. Additionally, it will also help reverse the effects of diabetes on other systems including peripheral neuropathy thus, protecting the limbs. The complex transplant surgeries were performed with the help of various speciality doctors including multi-organ transplant surgeons - Dr. Bipin Vibhute, Dr. Anil Vaidya, Dr. Dinesh Zirpe, Dr. Sharan Narute & Dr. Abhijeet Mane, transplant Anaesthetists - Dr. Manish Phatak & Dr. Dinesh Babu, Nephrologist - Dr. Sachin Patil & Hepatologist, Gastroenterologist - Dr. Sandeep Kulkarni. Transplant coordinators - Mr. Arun Ashokan & Mr. Rahul Tambe and Medical Social Worker Ms. Sharmila Padhye were also part of this team.
