about Dr Sonal Asthana
Dr Asthana is a trained hepatobiliary and transplant surgeon with work experience in leading centers in North America, UK and India . He has completed an American Society of transplant surgeons -accredited fellowship at the University of Alberta hospital, Edmonton Canada.
The management of a transplant team requires a strong multidisciplinary approach to patient care, which is fairly different from the traditional hierarchical method still common in most surgical practice. Managing teams of highly skilled individuals working towards common goals will be a key skill for managers in modern medicine.
