New Delhi, Mar 12: Renowned Indian liver transplant surgeon Dr Subhash Gupta is set to travel to Karachi to perform surgeries and train doctors there, said Pakistan media reports on Monday. They said that Dr Gupta will arrive with his team at the Ojha campus of the Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) in Karachi this month.

“Dr Gupta is coming to Karachi this month to carry out three to four liver transplant surgeries at the Ojha campus of DUHS,” announced DUHS Vice-Chancellor Prof Saeed Quraishy at a medical conference on gastroenterology and liver diseases, said reports.

Dr Gupta had performed liver transplant surgeries in Karachi in December 2017 too. He will once again head to Karachi and will also train a team of doctors there to perform complicated surgeries without the supervision of senior foreign doctors.

Dr Gupta’s visit is being reported to have been scheduled even as the relations between India and Pakistan remain tense. There have been ceasefire violations by Pakistan Army in the past few months and the Indian Army has been responding to them.
