He pioneered the split liver transplantation technique, involving the division of a healthy donor organ to help transplant it to two patients. While he is now affiliated to Global Hospitals, he also works at King’s College Hospital, in the UK. He also has special interest towards Whipple procedure (also known as Pancreaticoduodenectomy) with portal vein resection (PVR) which is usually performed on patients with advanced stage pancreatic cancer. He has written a number of scientific articles and papers on liver transplantation, complex hepatobiliary pancreatic surgery and more. A team led by him performed a successful liver transplantation for a five-day-old girl, which gave him an entry into the Guinness Book of Records in 2000.
