Magazine feature on Dr. A. S. Soin

Dr A S Soin is recognized all over the world over for his pioneering work in establishing liver transplantation in India. From 2001 to mid-2010, he established a big liver transplant centre at Sir Gangaram Hospital. However, in June 2010, he moved with his entire team to Medanta-The Medicity, Gurgaon (Delhi-NCR). Medanta at the current bed strength of 925 (and soon to be 1500) is one of the largest and the most modern tertiary care hospitals in the country, where Dr. Soin has established a 150-bedded (including 36 Liver ICU beds) dedicated Liver Treatment facility, carrying out 250 liver transplants and hundreds of complex liver and biliary tract surgeries every year.

Medanta Liver Institute is a first of its kind dedicated Institute in Asia and one of the few in the world, which combines state-of the art facilities for Living donor, Cadaveric donor, pediatric and adult liver transplantation along with a large research programme for stem cell and liver cell transplantation. These are cutting edge technologies that can potentially treat liver failure without transplant.

Dr Soin has performed more than 2500 living donor liver transplants in India, which is the highest in the country, and the second highest in the world. He and his team currently perform 22-25 live donor liver transplants every month with 95% success - results which are at par with the world's best centres. Apart from referrals from all over the country, he handles cases from the rest of South Asia, The Middle East and Africa.

Besides running their own highly successful programme, he and his team are also responsible for training most of the remaining liver transplant teams in India and neighbouring countries that have recently started performing this procedure. In disseminating expertise countrywide and beyond, building confidence in the procedure among patients and their referring physicians, and in moving it from experimental status to a highly successful life-saving procedure, he has in the true sense, pioneered the development of this speciality in India and the subcontinent in the last 15 years.

In his extensive experience of 21 years as a Liver Transplant Surgeon and Hepatobiliary surgeon, he has performed more than 1500 liver transplants and more than 12000 other complex liver, gall bladder and bile duct surgeries.

Dr Soin serves on the committees of all the important National and International Societies, as well as the National Advisory Board in Liver Transplantation. He is a regular Faculty member and speaker (often the only one from India) at most world fora in Liver Transplantation such as ILTS, AASLD, APDW, IHPBA, IASGO, APASL, Asian Living Donor Liver Transplant Group, Asia Pacific Organ Transplant Forum etc.

Summary of Academic Career of Dr. A. S. Soin
Doctor Soin's initial surgical training was at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. He spent 11 years there gaining his MBBS and MS degrees followed by specialist experience in Liver and Gastrointestinal Surgery, during which he published a research thesis on Portal Hypertensive Gastropathy.

He then obtained FRCS degrees from both Glasgow and Edinburgh in the UK, following which he trained and worked at two of the worlds most renowned centers (University of Cambridge 5 years, University of Birmingham 1 year) for Liver and Biliary Surgery, and Liver, Kidney, Small Bowel and Pancreas transplantation for 6 years. He was one of the first few surgeons in the UK to qualify for and obtain an Intercollegiate FRCS in Transplant Surgery.

In addition to performing hundreds of transplants, he was Surgical Tutor for the University of Cambridge, and Faculty for 2 of the Royal Colleges in Surgery. At Cambridge, he also conducted pioneering research in transplantation. More than 110 of his original research papers and book contributions have been published / in international / national journals and books.

He was a Visiting Fellow at the Kyoto University Hospital in 1997 and Asan Medical Centre, Seoul, in 2000. He was Visiting Faculty at the Ege University, Izmir, Turkey in 2004, and Istanbul in 2006 and 2007. These centres are among the worlds most renowned for living donor liver transplantation.

In the beginning of 1998, he gave up the opportunity of a Faculty post at University of Cambridge and chose to return to India to establish a centre of excellence in liver transplantation in his own coutry.
