We use special protocols to delay the progression of cirrhosis and prevent liver cancer. However, in a minority where cirrhosis is advanced or cancer develops, a timely liver transplant is advised. Holistic, seamless management and close follow up of a patient with cirrhosis is the motto of the specialized clinic.

Utilize cutting-edge technology

  • The DaVinci Si 3D Robot

    The Da Vinci robotic technology is the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today.  It enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex surgeries through a few tiny incisions, instead of giving the patient a big cut. The system has an ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating. The hand movements of the surgeon are converted into corresponding micro-movements of instruments inside the patient’s body.

  • Modular Liver Operating Theatres

    Specially designed state-of-the-art modular operating theatres constructed with seamless, anti-infection technology fit in all equipment and fool-proof monitoring systems required by the liver surgeon to perform any surgery with precision. These are India's first special liver and biliary surgery operation suites.

  • 256 slice CT Scan

    This is an innovative non-invasive imaging technique that is specifically used to obtain a complete 3-Dimensional visual representation of the liver and other organs, in as less as 5 seconds. Its advanced machinery allows the experts to view your organs from any angle and the embedded detector can pick up varying densities of the organs and sends this data to a computer. The data acquisition and processing in this machine is four times faster than conventional machines, enabling us to give you the best possible diagnosis in the shortest possible scanning time.

  • 3.0 Tesla MRI

    The 3.0 Tesla MRI is an extremely efficient technology, which utilises shorter scan times and maximises patient comfort without compromising quality. The image clarity of this technology is particularly beneficial for pathological conditions involving various organs and body systems. This allows our health-care team to provide you with early diagnosis and treatment, subsequently reducing potential complications.

  • Virtual liver surgery lab with 3-D Myrian CT system/software

    Next generation pre-surgical planning and virtual surgery (prior to the actual operation) is done with this system of on-the-fly matching of 3D CT or MRI scans. Using this technology, the percentage of unnecessary surgical explorations for liver, bile duct and gall bladder cancer are less than 1% at Medanta.

  • FDG-18 PET scan

    The whole-body scan that detects the extent and spread of liver and biliary cancer, thus allowing better surgical planning and avoiding futile surgery in those who have widespread disease

Avail advanced treatment and procedures

  • Liver Transplant

    Liver transplantation is the replacement of an infected Liver with a healthy liver. Generally, the procedure is necessary when the liver functions are damaged beyond the capacity to regenerate. Living donor transplantation is a procedure through which a part of a living donor liver is removed and then implanted in the receiver. The benefit is that the liver regenerates to its full size in both the receiver and the donor.

  • Liver Surgery

    Liver surgery include operations of the liver for various disorders like resection, it is the most common operation of the liver in which a part of the liver is removed. It approximately takes 3-4hours for the surgery and 5-6 weeks for complete recovery.

  • Biliary Surgery

    This is an operation on the common bile duct, which connects the liver to the gastrointestinal tract. The bile duct transports bile, which breaks up lipids in our food so they can be absorbed by the body. In the event that the stream of bile from the liver is obstructed by a gallstone or a tumour, for instance, you may require biliary surgery.

  • Interventional Radiology Procedures

    Interventional Radiology procedure is used for the treatment of liver tumours. It refers to utilisation of radiological image guidance such as X-ray, ultrasound, CT scan or MRI to accurately target treatment. Interventional radiology treatment begins with passing a needle through the skin to the target. It is also called pinhole surgery.
