Minister for School Education Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi inaugurated a paediatric liver and kidney transplantation centre at Gem Hospital here on Sunday.
Launching the centre, Mr Poyyamozhi urged people to benefit from the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Insurance Scheme that covered many high-end procedures in private hospitals too.
Gem Hospital chairman C. Palanivelu said the minimally invasive liver donation was becoming popular and Korean Taiwan were the leader. A small segment of the donor’s liver, around 30% from the left lobe, was taken in the laparoscopic procedure. The donor would get back to routine life in a day or two. After donating a liver, the same parent was able to look after the child easily.
Mr Poyyamozhi gave away prizes to winners of the childhood obesity awareness programme conducted by the hospital. District Collector G.S. Sameeran, Coimbatore Medical College Dean A. Nirmala, Masonic Hospital medical advisor M. Ramasamy, former MLA N. Karthik and Dr R. Parthasarathi were present.
Children affected with rare liver complications can get used to this and approach the hospital for further treatment. If you have a government insurance scheme card, it will be an added advantage.
