American Patient’s Liver Transplant

Patient Name: Mr. Kevin Stewart

Patient From: USA

Condition Suffering From: Chronic Liver Condition/Liver Failure

Treatment/Procedure: Liver Transplant Surgery

Doctor/Surgeon: Dr. Subhash Gupta

Hospital: Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, New Delhi


 

It was due to excessive alcohol consumption that Kevin feel terribly ill; particularly, the most suffered organ was his Liver. He became a patient of a Chronic Liver condition because of which he was bogged down by some very difficult symptoms, to the extent of not being able to breathe comfortably. As a result, his normal life was badly affected. Looking at his condition, he was told that a Liver Transplant is the only remedy that could save him.

In USA, generally there is long waiting list for Cadaver Transplantation and Kevin was losing on previous time; needed the procedure at the earliest. So, when he came to know about the benefits of getting treated in India, he did not delay and immediately chose to come to Indraprastha Apollo Hospital in India. Here, Dr. Subhash Gupta was the surgeon who took up this critical case. With experience of more than 37 years, Dr. Gupta is an extremely sought-after Hepato-biliary Surgeon associated with this very renowned hospital. He along with him team has conducted hundreds of Liver Transplants and he is specialized to handle the most critical forms of Liver conditions.

Thus, when he studied Kevin’s case, he immediately planned the whole treatment very carefully. According to him, when Kevin arrived, he had fluid accumulation in his abdomen which needed to be drained so that he could breathe normally. Fortunately, his sister, Jo Ann Hall volunteered to donate her Liver, which eased the situation and prevented Kevin from waiting for a long time. After a detailed health evaluation, on a decided date, the life-saving surgery was done by Dr. Gupta and his team.

Despite the intricacy of the procedure, the fluency of the surgeon (Dr. Gupta), his team members ensured that it was successful. Not only was the surgery a major success but also, the patient never faced any post-surgical complications. Dr. Gupta put him on appropriate medication that prevented any chance of infection or organ rejection. Both the recipient and the donor have had a remarkable recovery and are doing extremely well. Kevin says that the way everything was handled at Apollo is awesome and beyond his expectations. In the span of just two weeks, Kevin and his sister were ready to head back home. His wife and his brother-in-law also joined them to take them home and are very grateful to see their family members in the perfect health condition.
