To Make an Appointment

Liver is a very important organ of the human body. Liver is the largest solid organ present in our body, it is reddish brown in color and it is protected by the rib cage. Liver is divided into two parts left and right, it is also surrounded by pancreas and gallbladder. Liver along with these organs work together to digest, absorb and assimilate nutrients. The primary function of the liver is detoxification of the blood; it filters the blood for chemicals and toxins from the digestive tract before passing it to the body. Liver plays a vital role in digestion as it secretes bile salts without which digestion cannot take place.
