Centre for Liver and Biliary Sciences (CLBS)


Centre for Liver and Biliary Surgery (CLBS) at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket is one of the largest liver transplant programs of the world. It has carried out more than 300 living donor transplants every year for the last 5 year successively. In 2014 the group transplanted more than 350 patients. It has now a cumulative experience of over 2700 liver transplant operations.

Our Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Intensivists, Radiologists and Nurses have been involved in the care of patients with liver problem since 1998. The Centre is a training ground for many aspiring Liver Units from all over the world. Teams from USA, Malaysia, Kenya, Kazakhstan, Myanmar, Pakistan and Bangladesh have undergone training at this Centre. Within India, training has been given to SMS Medical College, Jaipur, Cuttack Medical College and Bangalore Medical College, Bombay Hospital, Indore, & KGMU, Lucknow. Many of our trainees are now heading transplant centres in the rest of the country.

CLBS has treated patients from over 20 countries. The advantages of treatment here are low cost and consistent results in this highly complex surgery. This has been possible because the group has pioneered Living Donor Liver Transplantation in India and has introduced numerous innovations to make surgery simple and safe for the donor and simultaneously improve the outcome for the recipient.

With the view to disseminate knowledge of liver transplantation, CLBS organizes an annual scientific conference. The 5 th CLBS conference will be held from 29 th September to 2 nd October, 2019. In this meeting, we hope to share our experience with the rest of the world and also learn from the masters to strengthen areas where we feel it needs improvement. Ex-CLBS trainees have excelled in their own centres and we hope that in this meeting we will be able to interact with them once again and relive those moments when liver transplantation was a rarity in India.
