Cost less treatment

The trust proposes to perform cost less surgeries for children with biliary atresia. This will be done for unaffordable patients / families below poverty line so that they can be completely cured of liver disease or significantly delay the need for transplantation.

The trust also proposes to do free surgeries for adults diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. Timely surgery can increase the survival rates for this disease to as much as 50%.
