Cuttack’s SCB Medical College and Hospital has inaugurated a dedicated outpatient department (OPD) for liver transplant patients. Open on Thursdays from 9 am to 1 pm, this initiative aims to provide specialized care for individuals with liver-related ailments. The newly established OPD, located in the super-speciality building, will focus on early detection, leading to enhanced treatment outcomes. The unit will cater to patients diagnosed with liver cirrhosis, fatty liver, liver tumor, liver cancer, and segmental liver resection. Notably, three doctors have been designated to offer the OPD services.

According to Dr. Rajesh Dora, head of the liver transplant unit, the dedicated OPD will allow for immediate classification of patients, facilitating faster detection and diagnosis. By opening the facility, many individuals stand to benefit from improved treatment options.
