Living donor liver transplantation facility will soon be made available in Brunei Darussalam through Jerudong Park Medical Centre, JPMC and Yashoda Hospitals, India. Speaking at a media conference yesterday afternoon, the Chief Operating Officer of JPMC said the medical centre is committed to provide an optimal treatment and effective health care services.
According to Mr Varghese Paulose, the facility will be implemented by the first quarter of next year. The partnership will further improve the quality and effectiveness of health care for all Bruneians and make Brunei Darussalam among one of the medical tourism destinations for quality patient care. The Ministry of Health will be involved actively in pre-operative evaluation and screening for liver transplants and post-operative management to improve health for successful liver transplant outcomes. Meanwhile, Doctor Professor Balachandran Menon, the Director of Liver Transplant of Yashoda Institute of Liver Transplant and Hepatobiliary Diseases said whether or not recipients are good candidates for liver transplantation is determined by examining and analysing each patient's medical condition and characteristics.
The joint medical partnership will bring a team of highly trained specialists with many decades of combined experience. According to Doctor Kabeer Meera Saheeb, Medical Director of JPMC, the joint venture also involves local medical and nursing personals.
