Ahead of the proposed surgery of, Bharatiya Janata Party General Secretary Pramod Mahajan in Mumbai's Hinduja hospital, liver surgeon Ravindranath said there was, "...no need to transplant the liver."
Mahajan was shot by his brother Pravin Mahajan on Saturday in his Worli, Mumbai residence.
Talking to UNI, leading liver transplant surgeon and Global Hospital Director Dr Ravindranath, who returned to Hyderabad on Sunday after visiting Mahajan, said the BJP leader could survive with the damaged liver.
Dr Ravindranath, who went to Mumbai on a request from the Mahajan family, said, ''Mr Mahajan would survive with the damaged liver, which has the capacity to grow. There is no need for a liver transplant.''
He said the BJP leader's health condition was still critical, as he had received critical injuries to his liver, lower chest, abdomen and pancreas.
The hospital, which is known for conducting liver-tranplants had a visitor in Dr Mohammad Rela, the liver transplant expert from Kings College London, who is currently at Mumbai at the behest of the Mahajan family.
