No need to transplant Mahajan's liver : Doctor
Hyderabad, Apr 24 : Ahead of the proposed surgery, noted Liver Surgeon Ravindranath said there was ''no need to transplant the liver'' of BJP General Secretary Pramod Mahajan, battling for his life in a Mumbai hospital after being shot by his brother Pravin Mahajan.
Talking to UNI, leading liver transplant surgeon and Global Hospital Director Dr Ravindranath, who returned here yesterday after visiting Mr Mahajan, said the BJP leader could survive with the damaged liver.
Dr Ravindranath, who went to Mumbai on a request from the Mahajan family, said, ''Mr Mahajan would survive with the damaged liver, which has the capacity to grow. There is no need for a liver transplant.'' He said the BJP leader's health condition was still critical, as he had received critical injuries to his liver, lower chest, abdomen and pancreas.
The Hospital, which is known for conducting liver-tranplants had a visitor in Dr Mohd Rela, the liver transplant expert from Kings College London, who is currently at Mumbai at the behest of the Mahajan family.
