The alliance & partnership between Wockhardt Hospitals Nagpur, and South Asian Liver Institute , has given new hope for LIVER CANCER Patients in the Vidarbha region. A patient previously told that no options exists for cure was reviewed by Prof Dr Tom Cherian & Team in Dec 2022. With careful re-evaluation & advanced surgical expertise the Team carried out a complex operation in Wockhardt Hospital Nagpur, to remove the cancer completely. Now nearly 1 month after surgery, the patient & family can hope to lead a normal life with a survival close to anyone else of his age.
Mr. Anil Patil was first diagnosed to have a Liver cancer nearly 2 years ago. He then visited several hospitals for treatment and despite even travelling to Hyderabad, the doctors could find no option that would CURE the patient. He was therefore repeated given chemotherapeutic treatment which was only going to prolong survival by a few months. However at the advice of a friend, Mr AP decided to visit Prof Dr Tom Cherian in Dec 2022, who carefully re-evaluated the whole history & all previous investigations.
Thanks to to his experience with Transplantation in London and in Hyderabad, Prof Cherian suggested to the family that with a slightly complex operation there was a possibility that he could remove the cancer completely which could potentially allow a complete CURE for the patient.
True to his word, the operation was carried out as planned and Mr AP was discharged approximately 10 days afterwards, with a histology report confirming that the cancer was indeed out with no cancer left inside. This heart warming story is a significant step in medical care in the Vidarbha region, giving new hope to hundreds of liver patients here.
