Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary Surgery & Liver Transplant


This is one of the new departments in PSG Hospitals, which was established as recently as June 1, 2013. It is the first of its kind in Coimbatore. The department has three surgeons, Dr Gursharan Singh, Dr Joseph and Dr Swaminathan, all with international experience, and specialises in the entire gamut of surgeries pertaining to diseases of the liver, pancreas and the biliary tract.

The operating suites and intensive care units (liver transplant ICU and surgical ICU) are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. Recently, a very sick patient with Extra Hepatic Portal Venous Obstruction (EHPVO), or hypertension caused by blockage in the portal vein before the blood reaches the liver and gangrene of the small bowel, was effectively diagnosed, treated and cured. Advanced specialised procedures such as left lateral segmentectomy of liver are also performed by the department.

Till date the department has undertook 11 successful liver transplant surgeries and also has initiated research activities.
