Since launching the liver transplant program in 2015, this achievement underscores Apollo Speciality Hospitals' commitment to providing world-class liver transplant services in southern Tamil Nadu. The liver transplant program at Apollo Speciality Hospitals Madurai is distinguished by its comprehensive approach and dedicated team, including the region's only full-time hepatologist, Dr. Elankumaran, Head of the Liver Transplant Program.
