Tina Ambani, Chairperson, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, graced the occasion with her presence and played a pivotal role in its launch.

Studies show that more than one-third, around 38 per cent of Indians, have a fatty liver or “metabolic dysfunction associated with steatotic liver disease” also known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD is often unrecognised since it does not cause symptoms in the early stage but may progress silently until the condition is severe. The clinic will help in the diagnosis of the liver disease at an early stage and its treatment with the highest quality of care.”
Dr Gaurav Mehta consultant, Gastroenterology/hepatology and transplant hepatology, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai said, “With the launch of the liver clinic and the power of technology, we are ushering in a new era of liver care. Early detection, made possible through advanced diagnostic tools, has become our strongest ally in the fight against liver diseases. Liver transplants, were once fraught with challenges however with the benefit of cutting-edge surgical techniques and precision medicine we can cure liver-related issues. Together, we are offering hope to those in need, transforming lives, and paving the way for a healthier future.”
The Super-Speciality Liver Clinic will offer intensive medical care with a liver ICU for patients with life-threatening acute liver failure and a liver transplant facility. Liver transplantation is the gold standard for treating end-stage liver disease or cirrhosis and is a life-saving operation for patients with acute liver failure. Kokilaben Hospital has cutting-edge technology and advanced infrastructure for surgery and post-operative care with a dedicated multi-speciality team of experienced doctors and staff.
In cases of liver cancer, the liver clinic will take a multi-modality approach with different options of treatment such as radio-frequency ablation, TACE (trans-arterial chemoembolisation), TARE (trans-arterial radioembolisation), liver resection and liver transplantation. Early diagnosis can help in positive clinical outcomes for patients with liver cancer.
