his music.  
Global Health City the flagship facility of Global Hospitals Group, one of India’s fastest growing hospital chains, has performed liver transplantation on over 60 patients from Sri Lanka apart from many complex Liver and Pancreatic surgeries. 
“The people present have all undergone a transplant over the last six years. Their presence here is a testimony to the fact that organ transplant is a safe solution to address liver failure. It might also be relevant to mention here that, we have performed a transplant on a child who was weighing less than five kilos who incidentally happens to be from Sri Lanka”, said Prof. Dr. Mohamed Rela  speaking on the occasion. 
“It is a great experience to see patients transplanted few years ago to a few months ago, both adults and children return back to normalcy and enjoying a good quality of life.
