PRIME TRANSPLANT DEPARTMENT IN KERALA


The Liver Transplant facilities at VPS Lakeshore Hospital, with an all-inclusive CLCI (Comprehensive Liver Care Institute), are the most sought after by people. Word has spread about the precisive surgeries performed by the best team of doctors equipped with the hospital’s finest medical technology in transplantation along with the 94% success-rated surgeries during the COVID-19 pandemic.
