First Living Donor Liver Transplantation at Sterling Hospitals, Ahmedabad
 
Dr Kanubhai Gohil a 52 years old general practionar from Anand was having abdominal discomfort, weakness and jaundice since three months. Doctors discovered that his liver was getting hard and smaller a condition called Liver Cirrhosis. On further investigations he was found to be suffering from Hepatitis C. He received blood transfusion before 20 years for anemia and that is how he got infected with hepatitis C.
 
His general condition started deteriorating as he started accumulating fluid in his abdomen, his weakness was increasing and his jaundice was getting worst. He was suffering from terminal liver failure and was not expected to survive beyond a few weeks without a liver transplantation. He had a very small window period to get the transplantation as his condition was deteriorating fast. The only hope was Living Donor Liver Transplantation where a family member donates part of the liver. His wife was not medically suitable and his children were under weight for the liver donation. His brother in law Mr. Punam Parmar agreed to donate part of his liver as he has a matching blood group to save Dr Kanubhai. Mr. Punambhai underwent a thorough and detailed checkup for his suitability and was found to be a suitable donor.
 

Dr Kanubhai Gohil underwent Living Donor Liver Transplantation where, Mr Puman donated half of his liver on 20 May 2011.The surgery was conducted in two adjacent operation theaters. The operation was performed by Dr A S Soin, Dr Hitesh Chavda, Dr Ravi Mohanka and their team. Dr A S Soin - Chief of Liver Transplant & Hepatobiliary Surgeon, Institute of Liver Transplantation & Regenerative Medicine - Medanta-the Medicity, Gurgaon and his team has the largest experience of Liver Transplantation in the country. Dr A S Soin is a senior advisor for the Liver Transplantation program at starling hospital, Ahmedabad as he and his team is helping the local to team to perform this mega task. Dr S. Patwari, Dr Nilay Mehta ( Hepatologists), Dr Vismit Joshipura, Dr Amit Shah , Dr Ashish Parikh and Dr Sumana (surgeons) were part of the  team that operated upon Dr Gohel . The Anesthesia team members were Dr Vijay Vohra from Medanta Hospital, Gurgaon and Dr Sanjiv Upadayay, Dr Raxesh Desai and Dr Bhavin Patel.

 
A liver transplantation operation, a fourteen hours long operation which saw surgeons removing about half liver form Mr. Puman which was implanted in Dr Kanubhai after removing his diseased liver, worked. He had a dramatic recovery. The donor and patient were discharged from hospital on 7th and 12th postoperative day respectively and are doing well.
 

The Liver is the largest organ in the body which is divided into right lobe and the left lobe. Liver has a tremendous capacity to regenerate, means if we remove a portion of healthy liver than it would regrow in two to three months. About 75% of the liver can be removed from a normal-healthy liver and a person can survive with remaining 25% liver which regenerates. Living Donor Liver Transplantation involves a very complex procedure where 4 to 5 fine blood vessels and bile duct of the new liver is connected to the body.
