Patients Testimonial

My mother was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma (Common bile duct cancer) inside liver. Since her cancer was in a very sensitive area in the liver, surgeons said it would be too risky to operate. He was given prognosis of 6-8 months last year. We reached out best onco surgeons in the world and sent all the reports and scans by email to the surgeons.

Dr P Jagannath ,one of these surgeons offered us hope by asking us visit him immediately. He did CT scans and other tests . He immediately perfomed the liver surgery which was originally estimated to be 4-5 hours but actually lasted 11.5 hours at Lilavati Hospital.

After first two hours, Dr Jagannath came and spoke to me. He updated me that only one side of liver was affected which he said was a sign of victory. Having said that its now more than a year and my mother is leading a healthy life. Fortunately she did not need any chemo or radiation as her biopsies, scans and other lab work came back negative.

We are truly thankful to Dr P Jagannath for his incredible surgical precision and expertise on saving my mothers life. My wife along with other surgeons had explained to me and my father that its a extremely risky surgery and overall chance of survival for my mother was less than 1%. Also credit to other surgeons who assisted Dr Jagannath in the surgery.    - Deepak
