A team of doctors successfully performed the first ever liver transplant, where the liver of a mother who was alive and well was transplanted in her daughter at a private hospital in Colombo. Medical professionals said the 20-hour surgery was carried out at Nawaloka Hospital and was considered a milestone in the management of chronic liver disease in Sri Lanka. Pix by Pradeep Dilrukshana

    Their are very good surgeons in Sri Lanka. However many of us go abroad, the result is some survive and some dont. Main think is to trust the good Doctors. Trust is very important of survival.
