The coffee table book is a part of the 'Liv Again' campaign started by Sahyadri Hospitals which will include awareness sessions in peripheral areas, OPDs amongst other activities.

Sachin Khedekar said that, "It is difficult to put into words how Dr. Vibhute and his team have given life to so many people. The transplant process is long, time-bound and involves many people. Transplantation is like reincarnation. In acting we say that we entered alienation, and alienation entered and people believed that it wasn't them, it was somebody else, but we knew what they were saying. Even though this is a fantasy in my opinion, you can make the fantasy in your mind a reality. It is a great achievement for you as a medical expert. Today, I am happy that you have re-established 300 families. Those who are sick, those who need medical help are looking forward with hope. Donors are donating in a selfless spirit, but misconceptions about this should be removed."

Dr. Bipin Vibhute, Director and Head of Organ Transplantation & Hepatobiliary Surgery, Sahyadri Hospitals, said, "There is no doubt that awareness and confidence amongst common people about organ donation is increasing as they witness the success rates of transplants. But we are still in a situation in our country where we lose many end-stage patients because of unavailability of organs and tissues. The gap must narrow and therefore the organ donation rate must increase multifold."

He added that, "Earlier apart from the myths about organ donation, cost associated with transplant and the people's perception was another challenge. But now it's changing. We   have been continuous efforts by opening up liver transplant facilities at our Nashik and Karad Units. Sahyadri Hospitals Karad unit has become  India's first Taluka level Centre to have Liver Transplant facility. We have also been conducting the Liver Champion campaign in various smaller towns in Maharashtra where we have been felicitating people who have undergone liver transplants are leading a normal life and inspiring others."

Abrarali Dalal, CEO Sahyadri Hospitals Group, said organ retrieval and transplant is a long, extensive but a time bound process which needs to be carried out seamlessly with the help of a multi divisional team including doctors, nurses, counsellors, transplant coordinators, blood banks, ZTCC, traffic police who have been creating green corridors, support staff etc and the NGOs who have also helped needy patients especially small children.   But above all it is the noble deed of the donor and the family which makes things possible. This book showcases the incredible transformation lives of people who have undergone transplants and salutes the noble deeds of these great individuals and their families.

He added that that, "We have been in the forefront of organ donation and transplant programs. Liver Champions program, taluka level facility at Karad, programs for organ donation pledge are all a part of this effort. With Pune emerging as an affordable center and a hub of organ transplant, the program will further gain momentum and benefit all sections of the society."

Sahyadri Hospitals have now got multi organ transplant centres at Deccan, Nagar Road, Karad and Nashik and has recently opened liver transplant facility at Hadapsar Unit.
