India’s first recipient of liver transplant, now out to beco
Now 21, Sanjay Kandasamy did not have an ordinary childhood. At just 20 months of age, he had a part of his father's liver transplanted into him in November 1998.

In doing so, Sanjay and his doctors created history in the annals of Indian medicine as the country's first successful liver transplant surgery, Indraprastha Apollo hospitals said in a statement.

Remarkably, not only has Sanjay done exceedingly well, he is now training to be a doctor himself.

On the 20th anniversary of the operation that changed the face of medical sciences in India, the hospital showcased the evolution that liver transplants have gone through over the last two decades.

Dr. Preetha Reddy, vice chairperson of the Apollo Hospitals Group, said liver disease is a major cause for concern in the country with as many as two lakh people dying from it every year.
