This liver transported from Aurangabad was successfully transplanted in the 55 year old who was suffering from chronic liver diseases at Sahyadri Hospitals, Deccan Gymkhana. Liver Transplant & HPB Surgeons Dr. Bipin Vibhute & Dr. Prashantha Rao, Transplant Anaesthetists-Dr. Manish Phatak, and the entire Liver Team carried out the Live Transplant.
