The primary reason for this is the changing lifestyle, wrong eating habits and addiction. Liver diseases have today become common even amongst people from rural areas and those staying on the outskirts of the city. Early detection of liver problems and the right treatment can help save many lives and awareness about this is important. Understanding this, Sahyadri hospitals is organising free liver check-up camps in various cities during May, Jun & to July 19. I would urge people to visit these camps and make good use of this opportunity.”

Equipped with advanced Equipments and State-of- the-art infrastructure, Sahyadri Hospitals has earned a distinction of being a provider of quality and world class healthcare services at affordable prices.

Collaborating with Healthspring for Goregaon , Andheri and Vashi & Apex Multispeciality Hospital for Borivali is a part of this effort .’
