ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Joint Venture- `Liver medical camp’ held at Ziauddin Hospital”

  1. Healthy Advice says:

    It is matter of great national pride that a hospital in Pakistan (Shifa International Hospital Islamabad) has so far performed more than 340 living donor liver transplant surgeries in Pakistan.
    The center was established in 2012 and since it has been performing the transplant surgeries as per International standards & parameters of success.

    There are still a lot of patients who are advised by Medical agencies and agents to visit Indian hospitals as Indian hospitals provide commission and financial incentive to these agents.

    I just would like to advice all the patients who have been recommended Liver Transplant to first visit Shifa International Hospital and then decide about their options for treatment.
