Despite the adverse situation created by then COVID-19 pandemic, ten young children, including some from foreign countries, successfully underwent a liver transplant at Saket’s Max Healthcare Hospital in Delhi.

We successfully conducted this task,” Dr Subhash Gupta, Chairman of the Liver Transplant Department at the hospital said.
