The Department of Surgical Gastroenterology and Liver Transplantation offers high end services to patients with gastrointestinal, hepato-biliary and pancreatic diseases. Choithram Hospital and Research Centre is a high volume centre of excellence for complex abdominal and liver surgeries. It is the only department in Madhya Pradesh with a successful liver transplantation programme with local expertise. We routinely performs hepatobiliary surgery, general and advanced laparoscopic surgery, upper GI surgery, bariatric surgery and colorectal surgery. We have complete range of diagnostic modalities including PET-CT for evaluation of GI cancers. With support from Gastroenterology, Endoscopy, Interventional Radiology, Critical care services and Medical Oncology, a combined team approach is offered for the management of complex hepatobiliary and abdominal cancer surgeries.
Liver transplant is a life saving operation that replaces a diseased and poorly functioning liver with either whole or portion of a healthy liver. Liver transplantation has become a well recognised treatment option for patients suffering from liver failure. At Choithram Hospital and Research Centre, the cadaveric liver transplant programme is successful with minimal cost to the patient. The team of experts at CHRC treats and supports the patients of end stage liver disease including pre-transplant and post-transplant care, as we have liver transplant dedicated team of Surgeons, Hepatologist, Anaesthetist, Intensivist, transplant coordinator and dedicated operation theatre & liver transplant ICU.
Our department now serves as a regional centre for liver transplantation in the central India, where several successful transplants have been performed. We hope that our initiatives for cadaveric organ donation will take shape in the near future enabling us to transplant more and more patients with end-stage liver disease. It is our aim to perform Living donor liver transplant (LDLT) in upcoming future.
