Dr. Anand believes in a holistic, integrated approach to health management. It starts with wellness or disease prevention by creating awareness about health and disease helping to make healthy lifestyle choices be it diet, exercise, sleep or stress management. Being aware gives you back control over your health. The multidisciplinary team approach to disease management allows for a comprehensive diagnosis and cure. This includes not only the latest in medical treatment and surgical techniques but nutrition, physiotherapy for early recovery and resumption of normal activities paving the way for reintegration into society.

Liver Transplantation India pioneered the concept of a hub and spoke model for liver transplants and currently operate across 15 centers across 7 states in the country. They have specialities in different areas such as: liver transplantation, hepato biliary pancreatic surgery, surgical gastroenterology and common diseases that may require surgical consultation such as Stones in the gallbladder, liver, bile ducts or pancreas. Cysts of the liver, bile ducts or pancreas (congenital, inflammatory, parasitic, cystic tumors) Inflammation/ Infections of the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas or intestine (Liver abscess, cholangitis, infected pancreatic necrosis/pancreatic abscess, chronic pancreatitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohns disease) Benign Tumors or Malignant Cancers affecting any of the above system.

Liver Transplantation India has undergone a tremendous change since the start of the first program at Apollo Chennai. Over 850 liver transplants and they have grown to become the 4th largest liver transplant program and the largest deceased donor liver transplant program in India. Starting with 2 surgeons they now are a team of 4 senior transplant surgeons apart from a team of over 20 surgeons, anesthesiologists, and hepatologists. The growth and establishment of liver transplantation have helped in the development of Hepatobiliarypancreatic surgery as a subspecialty performing complex procedures not available widely.

The foundation of a good doctor-patient relationship is trust. That bond is forged during direct doctor-patient interactions, where the doctor not only pieces together the puzzle of symptoms and signs to establish a diagnosis and plan medical treatment but gets to understand the patient as a whole and help them come to terms with their illness and begin the process of healing. When the patient looks at the doctor’s eyes, body language listens to the tone of their voice and modulation it speaks a language and conveys a message far more than just the word and begins to heal before medicines or surgery does.
