Dr.Seema Alam


General Physician

16 years experience

Pediatric Liver units were established in various centers in USA and UK, but Pediatric Hepatology as a specialty was not recognized in India. ILBS has not only recognized the specialty but also established a Pediatric Hepatology department for the first time in India in this institute. Department of Pediatric Hepatology at ILBS is a full-fledged department with well-trained faculty and senior residents. Diagnostic and therapeutic Pediatric GI endoscopies and procedures like hepatic vein pressure gradient and hepatic vein angioplasty as well as stenting are being performed. Intramural and extramural research are being done regularly in the department to tackle unanswered queries in the field of metabolic and infectious childhood liver disease.
