Doctors at BGS Perform Complex Liver Transplant Surgery Amidst the Pandemic
Bangalore : A 35-year-old patient got a new lease of life, after a team of medical experts at BGS Gleneagles Global Hospital, Bangalore performed a complex liver transplant surgery. His condition was deteriorating rapidly, by the time he arrived at the hospital. With no other option other than liver transplant, the team of Transplant Surgeons, Transplant Anaesthetists & Intensivists and Hepatologists performed a complex liver transplant to bring the patient back to life. The patient was suffering from a rare genetic disease called Wilson disease which was found only after his native liver was removed during transplantation and sent for pathological examination.
Dr Sunil Shenvi, Consultant HPB & Transplant Surgery stater that “The entire transplant was planned and performed with utmost care by the entire team, considering the health of every individual involved in the case. It was certainly challenging for the team to do liver transplant during a pandemic like COVID-19, as everyone involved was exposed to possible risks during this time. With the collaborative effort of the entire team which consists of Transplant Surgeons, Transplant Anaesthetists, Liver Intensivists, Hepatologists, Nurses, Physiotherapist, Nutritionists and the staff, this surgery was a success.”
