Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences Convocation

President of India, Pranab Mukherjee attended the Sixth Foundation Day of this prestigious Institute as also its 3rd Convocation ceremony.

The institution was established in January, 2010 and in this short time with its dedicated team it has acquired its place in the front ranking institutions of the country.

The Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences was set up as an autonomous, super-specialty, medical and research Institute by the Government of Delhi with the objective of providing a comprehensive healthcare facility for diagnosis and treatment, including a center for advanced research, in the field of liver and biliary diseases.

It is the first NABH and NABL accredited autonomous institute in the Government sector undertaking highly skilled and complicated surgeries, including liver and renal transplants, besides offering post-doctoral teaching & research in frontier areas.

The Institute provides first-rate medical care for patients with diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and associated organs of co-morbidity, such as the kidney and urinary system, not only to the people of India but also to people from other countries.

It serves as a model for health care by amalgamating both academic skills and clinical acumen.

The Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS), in its short span of six years, has given hope to millions of people by providing state-of-the-art patient care services at affordable cost, including advanced and dedicated research in the field of liver and biliary diseases.

A facility of this kind is an imperative given that liver cancers constitute the second most common cause of cancer related deaths in the world as per the WHO release of 2014.

It is heartening to note that ILBS has already been designated as a WHO Collaborating Centre on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Diseases. To add to the sense of accomplishment, the World Gastroenterology Organization (WGO) has set-up its second training center for liver diseases at the Institute.
