Globally, in the recent years, there has been a steady increase in the number of cirrhosis cases. This condition, in which the liver gets damaged, may happen due to various causes, including alcohol, hepatitis B, hepatitis C etc. If detected early, certain causes of cirrhosis have very effective treatment options. If detected very late, only liver transplantation can save the patient. The Gastro Centre not only offers the most modern available treatment options for patients with cirrhosis, but also tries to go one step ahead into preventive gastroenterology, for early detection of conditions like hepatitis B, through public awareness programme, promotion of vaccination, regular family screening of affected persons etc. Fatty liver is another silent killer which has been increasing in Kerala in epidemic proportions. We are striving towards early detection, and educating people about the major role played by lifestyle modifications in the management of this condition. Many public awareness programmes have been conducted by our gastroenterologists towards this goal.We believe in the saying-“ A healthy liver for a healthy life”.
