Over 50 million Indians are affected by liver ailments and the incidence appears to be on the rise,
said Anand Rammurthy, consultant, surgical gastroenterology and liver transplantation, Apollo
Hospitals, Chennai. He was speaking at the launch of Apollo liver clinic at Jehangir Hospital and
Apollo Clinic in Vimannagar recently.

"The liver clinic is a novel concept that offers multidisciplinary evaluation under one roof by
several sub-specialists in liver medicine," Rammurthy said. The aim of launching the clinic is to
create awareness and provide screening and treatment facilities under one roof, he added.

He described liver as a silent, uncomplaining worker.

Asked about the current shortage of cadaveric donors, Rammurthy said, "Living donor liver
transplant is a safe procedure with high success rates for both the donor and the recipient."

"Apollo Liver Clinics is an effort to simplify, streamline and optimise the care of patients with
liver disease. It has launched as a part of our mission to increase awareness regarding liver
health, liver diseases as well as treatment for cirrhosis or end stage liver disease with liver
transplantation. The clinic provides a road map of the treatment plan that is optimally tailored for
