Liver and Digestive Institute

Endoscopy at our center has an adenoma detection rate (ADR) of 35%, ten percent higher than the global average, resulting in more accurate and precise diagnosis and treatment. This figure is still increasing since we have adopted the Narrow Band Imaging magnification technique. Liver transplants at our center have a success rate of over 90%. These outcomes are comparable with other leading facilities worldwide.
