Dr. Arvinder Singh Soin receives R.D. Birla award

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

“During my twenty year journey, my practice has been tumultuous like a roller coaster,” said Padma Shri Dr. Arvinder Singh Soin with a smile, while sharing his thoughts and experience at the award function which was held to honour him with the R.D. Birla National Award for his pioneering work in the development of liver transplant surgery in India, at the S.P. Jain auditorium at Bombay Hospital on April 16.

Dr. Soin  has to his credit the achievement of  conducting maximum liver transplants in the country and establishing three liver transplantation centres in India, including the country’s first internationally acclaimed Liver Transplant Centre in New Delhi, was presented the twenty-sixth Rameshwardas Birla (R.D. Birla) National Award for outstanding clinician by Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot.

Speaking on how the scenario regarding liver transplants has changed over a period of time, Dr. Soin said, “Ten or fifteen years ago, liver transplant was either not possible or was experimental. Now it happens more frequently than before. The people and their referring physicians know that transplant is the method for treating any liver failure and the reference is also on time. What was a dream earlier, has now become irrefutable reality.”
