Realizing the child's condition, his parents were immediately alerted and took the child to Narayana Health Hospital in Bangalore, which is famous for liver transplant.

Sr. Dr. Raghavendra examined the child there and discovered that the child had metabolic liver disorder. Knowing that this disease would affect the child greatly, he immediately decided to do a liver transplant operation.The liver was donated from the child's father.
