Our doctors diagnose and evaluate a patient’s condition by using a combination of physical diagnosis, blood tests, and advanced imaging and design treatment plans accordingly. Some of the major treatment options we offer at the unit include:

Lifestyle Modification:  Modification in one’s lifestyle like stop drinking alcohol, exercising, drinking lots of water, etc. as a part of a medical program can help in treating a variety of liver problems.

Medication: Some of the common liver diseases can be treated with proper medication that a health care provider might prescribe for the treatment and management of the disease.

Liver Surgery: Surgery is one of the best options for curing primary liver cancer. The most common form of liver surgery is:

  • Liver Resections: it is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves the removal of all or a part of the liver affected with a disease or a tumour. Liver resection can be done in four ways such as 
    • Segmentectomy
    • Sectionectomy
    • Lobectomies 
    • Extended Resections
  • Liver Transplant: It is a surgical process of removing the liver that is no longer functioning properly and replacing it with a healthy liver obtained from a living or deceased donor (a person who is declared brain dead by the doctor). It is a treatment option for people with end-stage chronic liver disease or liver failure.

Liver is the largest internal organ that performs several critical functions including the removal of bacteria and other toxins from the blood, processing hormones, building proteins, etc. Thus, the treatment plans we offer at the unit are designed to help patients have a diseased free liver with proper functioning.

Our doctors perform all surgeries under the effect of anaesthesia. It might take a few weeks for a patient to recover from the surgery. However, for effective results and early recovery, a patient must adopt some lifestyle changes such as:

  • Eating low fats diet
  • Abstain yourself from alcohol and smoking
  • Having enough fibre in the daily diet
  • Stay hydrated
  • Exercise daily for at least 30 minutes
