Successful liver transplants at three hospitals

Peradeniya Teaching Hospital Director Dr. Arjuna Thilakaratne said three liver transplant surgeries were successfully performed in 24 hours at the Colombo, Ragama and Peradeniya Hospitals.

He said that five liver transplants have been successfully performed at the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital within the last six months. He added that special equipment is required for liver surgery and Peradeniya Hospital has all the necessary equipment and a team of expert doctors.

Dr. Thilakaratne said that if these liver transplant surgeries are done in a foreign country, it will cost around Rs.30 or 40 million and even if these surgeries are done in this country, the government will have to spend a lot of money for this.
