Bhubaneswar: In its continued commitment to bring in world class healthcare to the people of Odisha, AMRI Hospitals, Bhubaneswar, in association with Medanta – The Medicity, a Gurugram (formerly Gurgaon) based multi-specialty medical institute on Sunday launched a Liver Treatment OPD Clinic and started its operations.
The OPD services of this specialized liver treatment clinic would be available for once in every month. This facility is going to be the first ever clinic in Odisha which is going to offer easy access to world-class liver treatment including critical medical services like liver transplantation to the patients from the State as well as from other parts of the eastern region of the country.
Dr AS Soin, Chairman, Institute of Liver Transplant & Regenerative Medicine, Medanta – The Medicity will head the Institute along with Dr Prashant Bhangui, Senior Consultant, Institute of Liver Transplant & Regenerative Medicine, Medanta – The Medicity. A globally reputed surgeon, Dr Soin has performed over 2700 liver transplants and leads India’s largest and most successful liver transplant program at Medanta – The Medicity, which is rated as a Tier-I programme internationally.
