Bangalore, Dec 27, 2019: Manipal Hospitals Bengaluru performed a unique robotic liver transplant on a 40-year-old patient wherein the donor had only a small scar in the bikini area but no scar in abdomen.

Dr. Ravichand Siddachari, HOD & Consultant HPB & Liver Transplantation Surgery at Manipal Hospitals Bangalore, conducted this surgery. The recipient received a portion of the liver from a 32-year-old relative. A part of the donor's liver was extracted using a robotic arm during the process known as liver Hepatectomy i.e. the surgical removal of part of donor's liver. (UNI)
