Jyotsna Verma, born and bought up in Delhi, India, daughter of Sh. Om Prakash Raheja and Smt. Meena Raheja. Married to Mr. Rajesh Verma, a Civil Engineer and a well known Physics Teacher in Delhi, running his Education Institute in Delhi. She completed her Diploma in Medical Technology from Y.W.C.A. Delhi, graduated from Delhi University, completed MBA (HR & Marketing) and is India's most experienced Liver Transplant Coordinator. She worked with the pioneers of this field when Liver Transplant in India was in its developing stage and has been an invaluable asset in the development of Liver Transplant in India with Dr. A. S. Soin and Dr. Subash Gupta. Her experience is unmatched in India in the volume of work she has done for patients and donors undergoing liver transplant operations as well as counselling them and their families. She has also been trained at Kings College Hospital London under the guidance of Dr. Nigel Heaton, Dr. M. Rela and Dr. John O' Grady in Cadaver Organ Donation and has passion to create awareness about Organ Donation in India to save many more lives with organ failure. She worked at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and left Medanta - The Medicity, Gurgaon and has now taken up a new challenge by moving to much larger, affordable and the most patient-friendly Liver Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Program at the Fortis Hospitals (the largest chain of hospitals in India). With her experience of dealing with about 10000 liver disease patients and personally coordinating more than 600 liver transplants, she established the website, livertransplantconsultant dot com to help, guide and educate liver disease patients and those in the need of Liver Transplant. She wishes to share the moments faced by end stage liver disease patients, liver transplant patients and their family members. She cherishes a dream to develop a "Deceased Donor Liver Transplant Program" in India like Europe and United States of America, and is working hard to materialize it. She has started an "Online Consent" for organ donation after death for the first time in India through her website. The Process of Liver Transplant is highly complex and the patient and his attendants have to face a lot of Medical, Financial and Legal problems. Her sole aim is to provide them relief by proper Guidance, Education and by answering thousands of queries in their minds related to this complex and expensive medical treatment. This can reduce the complexity of this whole process to a large extent and ultimately result in completion of this procedure with full satisfaction. Above all, she believes that "Informed Decision" is the key to a successful liver transplant and provides knowledge, and satisfaction to liver disease patients and their families.
